Summary08586: Old URL Parameters doesn't work like before
Descriptionsince 2.05+ version there is an issue when we provide URL parameters to prefill answer to the survey.

ie : before 2.05+ version, acess from this kind URL works perfectly :

With 2.05+ that doesn't work anymore. Think the issue is from the new controller :
when we try .../index.php?sid=977121 : KO
TagsNo tags attached.

I am not sure what the problem is here. Can you please elaborate?
What new controller are you talking about?

Previously, with 2.0 version, it was possible to prefill answer with URL Parameters like this :

Since 2.05+ version, it seems index.php doesn't support anymore GET parameters with this method.

Now we have to prefill answer with a new url structure separated with / :

old method doesn't work anymore

Sammousa, this needs to be fix as the default routes (if a sid as GET param is given) need to be working for backward compatibility.

If you want to make a query string to pass the parameters you should start by constructing it properly:

Alternatively you can just append it to whatever limesurvey gives you as the default:

works perfectly for me..

I like that kind of answer !
I assume that backward compability means : add ?r=survey/index& in URL ?

I never seen any documentation with parameter r=survey ! This parameter is available in 2.0 version or it's new from 2.05+ ?

After consultation we came to the conclusion that this is not a bug.

 for further details. This changed from 1.92 to 2.0+ already.

Thank you for your understanding.
