DW crashing when using a long 'Go To Page' value

DW crashing when using a long 'Go To Page' value

Hi all,

I'm having DW CS4 crash with the latest UE installed when trying to use a fairly long value in the 'Go To Page' field in the workflow section. The value is:

ordertraining_next.php?decimalAmount=<?php echo ((isset($_POST["decimalAmount"]))?$_POST["decimalAmount"]:""); ?>&surname=<?php echo ((isset($_POST["surname"]))?$_POST["surname"]:""); ?>&decimalAmount2=<?php echo ((isset($_POST["decimalAmount2"]))?$_POST["decimalAmount2"]:""); ?>&product=<?php echo ((isset($_POST["product"]))?$_POST["product"]:""); ?>&v5=<?php echo ((isset($_POST["v5"]))?$_POST["v5"]:""); ?>

The strange thing is, it works with this, with is only one value shorter (without the v5 field on the end):

ordertraining_next.php?decimalAmount=<?php echo ((isset($_POST["decimalAmount"]))?$_POST["decimalAmount"]:""); ?>&surname=<?php echo ((isset($_POST["surname"]))?$_POST["surname"]:""); ?>&decimalAmount2=<?php echo ((isset($_POST["decimalAmount2"]))?$_POST["decimalAmount2"]:""); ?>&product=<?php echo ((isset($_POST["product"]))?$_POST["product"]:""); ?>

It seems to be related to the length. That extra value 'v5' seems to push it over the limit of how much info it can take. Any ideas?

Thanks guys

I just tried the same value and was not able to reproduce the error. The Go To Page code is written out correctly without Dreamweaver crashing.

If this is caused by the length of the value, is there a way to reduce the number of parameters that need to be passed or the length of the parameter names or values?

That's a shame. Is there a way I can put the code in manually instead of using the Universal Email interface?

You sure can. Just add the URL as much as it can take, save out of UE and go into code view on the page. You'll find the exact URL string as you entered, and make your edit.

Since Jimmy was not able to reproduce the error, it appears that it's not a limitation of UE. Often DW crashes are a result of a corrupt site cache file. It doesn't sound like it's the same sort of crash, but it's worth a try.
