I’ll be pointing visitors at a landing page to a tab on my site. The tab is named “Schedule | Signup”. I used the pipe character instead of “&” or “/” for looks (I didn’t use “and” due to space limitation). Including the pipe character in the url in buttons pointing to the tab resulted in a page not found error. By trial and error I discovered that omitting the pipe character from the url worked.

The string that works omits the pipe:
Although I suspect this is an html thing and not an Akita thing, it’s surprising that omitting a character used to identify a page element both is necessary and allows the click to display the page! So I pose the question of why, with a side question of “will this work in perpetuity?” because it’d be really bad if this were to break — I’d lose webinar signups…
(note: I have noticed that certain characters, like “&” in a url get translated to a string, and I’d expected the pipe character to do likewise — which it may have (I no longer recall) but nonetheless resulted in the 404 error)
