Suggestions with /null at the end of a valid URL>

Reported by: tym.lawrence@… Owned by: permagne@…
Priority: critical Component: 404Handler
Keywords: custom redirect handler 404 null suggestions Cc:


We recently implemented the custom redirect 404 gadget for a CMS 7 site. This site has friendly urls, such as '/en/about-us/management-team/'

For some reason, the gadget is logging over 1100 custom redirect suggestions, which have a '/null' at the end - for example /en/about-us/management-team/null

In each case, the referring page is itself (eg '/en/About-Us/management-team/' )

I tried deleting all the suggestions, but they keep getting generated.

Has anyone seen this before or have any idea of how to solve this? Its quite urgent as the site is set to go live today and I'd really like the 404 suggestions to be meaningful.

Please note that I'd previously raised this as a question (see https://www.coderesort.com/p/epicode/ticket/323). However, since it has come back again, I plan to close the question and leave this issue open.

Hi Tym,
have you tried using fiddler to see if any requests are point to the url that are being logged? You could also check the console in firebug for potential information - there might be a script error pointing to that url.

Hi Per,

Looks like you are correct. There appears to be an old image preloader script that is calling the /null URL. We will see if we can get rid of it. Once that is done, I'll close this ticket.
