Ever wonder why when calling fatbomb you had to always put the extra "/" before the "?" mark like:
If you don't do this, your request gets redirected to your fatbomb.cgi index page.
I got used to this quickly and adjusted my skins and I though all was well.
Recently I noticed that in my server logs that altavista and yahoo were referring surfers to the following types of addresses:
This caused everyone to go to the index page which was not desired.
Well, I finally sat down and figured out a fix for this. If you want it, it is very easy to make. Here are the instructions:
Edit the file: fatbomb_install_dir/lib/Gamma/Script.pm
Line 30 by default should look like:
$path .= 'default' if $path =~/\/$/;
Add an extra line following it as line 31:
$path .= '/default' if $path =~/^$/;
Now you should have the following:
Line 30: $path .= 'default' if $path =~/\/$/;
Line 31: $path .= '/default' if $path =~/^$/;
This seems to fix the problem for me. Hopefully, I'll start seeing a few more PPC conversions on these searches.
