Sputnik hates *s

If you try to search the name of a band with a '*' sign in their name into the "Find a Band" searchy thing or click on the band name from the "Similar Bands" section on another band's page, a blank page with the text "Bad URL, please re-enter." comes up.
For example the bands "Frost*" or "*Shels".

Also, if a band has an '&' sign in their name, when trying to reach their page from the Similar Bands section it says the band "was not found in our database".
For example "Gavin Harrison & 05ric".

Please fix this crap brothas.

it's the band's fault for putting stupid symbols in their name. sputnik is making a statement by not allowing you to search for them

In all honesty, it's a code issue because * is a wildcard and an & can have multiple functions (ANSI, concatenation, search restriction). It's something that can be modified, but it's a pain in the ass.

I agree King, but it's massive pain in the arse trying to find another way onto the band's page other than searching for them or using the related artists bit...

It wouldn't be difficult to fix.

I don't have access to the code or really anything with the review site. Or the forum for that matter.
