Description DC2 2006-08-17 22:35:17 UTC
(or any wiki url ending with action=raw, the given url was for 
example purpose only) 

I had a problem recently. Accesing a page with "action=raw". No 
problem with Opera but impossible with IE6+SP (403 error). I tryed 
accessing it from a javascript request, so seeing the html answer
 : "Forbidden, Raw pages must be accessed through the primary 
script entry point" (IE only).

 Note: the "from" page was a wiki page and it's for a usefull 
template. I would like to understand the difference between Opera 
and IE for wiki, and how to obtain the raw text under IE... 
(purpose of the raw action) 

I also tryed with a ctype=text/css but no effect. 
An fr:admin told me to declare it as a new bug. Here it is...

Thank You.

whou... thank you

isn't it still a kind of a bug  ?
(why this difference ?)

Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2006-08-17 22:48:30 UTC
IE has severe security problems. action=raw is restricted when IE is 
detected for safety reasons; you must use the canonical URL form (with

(and so what new ? 
it's a know IE fact...)

and in fact it still does not work : no more 403 error but 
IE said it can not find the page... (not available)

Comment 5 Dan Li 2006-08-18 03:00:59 UTC works for me.
Comment 6 DC2 2006-08-22 02:25:47 UTC
not for me : IE says there was no answer or it's not accessible and to 
try again later
