in reply to Side-effects of the Server Move

I notice one small difference, which was confusing me when writing a reference to a node.
Previously, we had our addresses as
index.pl?node_id=xxxxxx&lastnode_id=yyyyyy
Now, the addresses look like
index.pl?lastnode_id=yyyyyy&node_id=xxxxxx
I have to be careful when I want to quote a node.

update
Just to clarify. When I quote a node, I always use the [id://xxxx] notation. I wanted to say that the addresses I look at to get such number are changed. It's just a visual change for the human reader. My browser is happy enough :)

BTW, this post was entered as a comment to Side-effects of the Server Move and it came out unespectedly as root node. Root in which section? Couldn't find out.

update 7-May-2002 (!) At last, now the node is under the right parent. Thanks, kudra.

    If you're going to quote a node, use   [id://xxxxx] or   [id://xxxxx|blah] instead of index.pl?node_id=xxxxx

    In any event, the order of parameters in a URL isn't significant unless the CGI has hand-rolled their processing (i.e., they have used CGI.pm)
