I have noticed a problem with the "other versions" links from book pages, and I was wondering if anybody knows if it is a known problem or if I should report it.

For example, on the page for the hardcover edition of Mrs. Pollifax, Innocent Tourist there is a link for the paperback versions of that book. The link actually is:

http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/browser.php?s_type=b&k=9780679774204%252C9783886210824%252C9780449183366&b%5B%5D=Paperback&l=10

which to me looks like it should bring up the book browser and show all of those 3 listed ISBNs. And in fact in the past I have seen it do that. But what happens now when you click on the link is that it brings up the book page for only one of those books, specifically:

http://www.paperbackswap.com/Mrs-Pollifax-Innocent-Dorothy-Gilman/book/044918336X/

Note that I see this happen with all books, not just the one example I have shown here.

My question is: is this a known problem or should I report it?

ETA: I'm a computer person, and I see what the problem is with the URL. See the "%252C" between the ISBNs? Well, that should be just "%2C" (which is a comma), the "%25" is the percent sign itself, which shouldn't be encoded.

I'm going to go ahead and report it.

think you are right, all my WL offers lately haven't had the books linked to the other versions.
