I am testing the http://careers.stackoverflow.com/?bmidr=1bbbb website

I have found a issue on the site with searching. When I have entered very long values in the what and where textboxes, you end up at a blank screen

See these screenshots:

Search Page

Result Page

I know the URL is very long, but you need to check for this and display some message to the users if they enter wrong values in the search textbox.

  • This is a specific example of the more general bug you described in the other post; solving that will solve this one. Commented Apr 17, 2014 at 14:01
  • Technically different code bases, different teams. I reopened the question.

You should now see an error page when you access an URL which is very long.

Since we don't have a specific error message for this (very sparse) error, it will show a "Page not found" error.

Thank you for the report !
