Safari posting url code

583 Views
Last Modified: 2013-11-27
I have several forms on my website that upload to a php script. This is working fine except when some users using the Safari browser submit the form, I am receiving url coded text as below:
...DCMedName8=&DCMedDose8=&DCMedFreq8=&DCMedStart8=&DCMedStop8=&DCMedsReason8=&formname=%2FUF%28%2FIntakeQuestionnaireSection4.txt%29

instead of standard text as below:
DCMedName8=
DCMedDose8=
DCMedFreq8=
DCMedStart8=
DCMedStop8=
DCMedsReason8=
formname=/UF(/IntakeQuestionnaireSection4.txt)

I have placed code in my url script to address this and convert the code but can someone tell me why this is happening and is there an easy way to resolve it?  TIA
