Hi all,

I have just installed SilverStripe 2.4.7 on a second laptop of mine, this time in the www folder of my WampServer. I've noticed that the address leads to a never displaying page. Reading the Apache access log I see the following 404 errors (basically, all CSS and JS files are 404): - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/cms/css/%5C/cms/css/cms_right.css HTTP/1.1" 404 239 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/cms/css/%5C/cms/css/typography.css HTTP/1.1" 404 240 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/sapphire/thirdparty/greybox/%5C/sapphire/thirdparty/greybox/greybox.css HTTP/1.1" 404 277 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/sapphire/css/%5C/sapphire/css/Form.css HTTP/1.1" 404 244 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/cms/css/%5C/cms/css/layout.css HTTP/1.1" 404 236 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/cms/css/%5C/cms/css/cms_left.css HTTP/1.1" 404 238 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/sapphire/javascript/tree/%5C/sapphire/javascript/tree/tree.css HTTP/1.1" 404 268 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/sapphire/css/%5C/sapphire/css/SilverStripeNavigator.css HTTP/1.1" 404 261 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/sapphire/thirdparty/tabstrip/%5C/sapphire/thirdparty/tabstrip/tabstrip.css HTTP/1.1" 404 280 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/sapphire/thirdparty/prototype/%5C/sapphire/thirdparty/prototype/prototype.js HTTP/1.1" 404 282 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/sapphire/thirdparty/firebug-lite/%5C/sapphire/thirdparty/firebug-lite/firebugx.js HTTP/1.1" 404 287 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/sapphire/css/%5C/sapphire/css/TreeDropdownField.css HTTP/1.1" 404 257 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/sapphire/thirdparty/jquery/%5C/sapphire/thirdparty/jquery/jquery.js HTTP/1.1" 404 273 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/sapphire/javascript/%5C/sapphire/javascript/jquery_improvements.js HTTP/1.1" 404 272 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/sapphire/thirdparty/behaviour/%5C/sapphire/thirdparty/behaviour/behaviour.js HTTP/1.1" 404 282 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/sapphire/javascript/core/%5C/sapphire/javascript/core/jquery.ondemand.js HTTP/1.1" 404 278 - - [29/Aug/2012:12:28:14 +0200] "GET /index.php/sapphire/javascript/%5C/sapphire/javascript/loader.js HTTP/1.1" 404 259

At the same time, works well. I think SS should either fail fast with the index.php/admin URL or just balk at it.

Last, I'd like to ask that the forum software being used on these forums be upgraded to something capable. Really. The Search feature isn't useful as any search leads to thousands of results, it's impossible to preview posts or to find a user's posts but these two things are minor shortcomings. My gripes are with the search function. As an example, please search "css file not found" you'll see barely readable source HTML. Click the first result and you won't even land on the appropriate post, only. I don't know what technology is used but I think it quickly reaches its limits. Does the Search even accept logical operators?

I don't see anything wrong with phpBB or vBulletin or Phorum.

PS: I also regularly get a "Security token doesn't match, possible CSRF attack." message when I try to post a message on the forum.
