ASPX Search Problem

We have a company Web site with a 'Search' box.
If a customer searches for a product with a '/' in the code they get an error: -
Server Error in '/' Application.
Content controls are allowed only in content page that references a master page.

I don't think it likes the forward slash. The code being searched has 2: XXXXX/XX/XXXX

Can anyone help?

You probably need to escape the forward slashes.

Get the string from the Search Box and escape the slashes so that the search engine knows they are to be treated strictly as a single string.

The following link may help you if this is the case.

Otherwise, please tell us what language are you using in code behind (if any) or if javascript is fine with you, we can find a better solution.
