"Sorry, we can't find that page" on iPhone and Android
- Engineering Apr 6, 2012 10:02 AM
For the last week or two, we've been noticing an extremely large number of errors coming from mobile browsers. Specifically, many iPhones and Androids have been trying to access weird Chowhound URLs with garbled code instead of topic numbers- things like chowhound.chow.com/topics/function%20v() and the like. Unsurprisingly, the weird URLs lead to our "Sorry..." page. The problem appears to be happening a few other places on CHOW as well, such as Recipe pages.
We have reason to believe that some of you are finding these weird links somewhere on the site, suggesting a bug of some kind. Unfortunately, we have not managed to track them down thus far.
To those of you that frequent the mobile version of the site: does this problem sound familiar? Have you noticed an unusual number of "Sorry..." pages when browsing on Android or iPhone? And can you point out the link(s) you clicked to get there?
Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.
