I'm using Forms Based Auth using the SQLMembership provider and all seems to be working fine except for viewing user profiles from people search results.

The search is creating linkw like:


resulting in a user not found error. If I url encode the same link and paste into the address bar it works. It appears to the the # that is causing the problem. If I replace this with a %23 if works.



Does anyone know of a work around for this?

The September 9,2014 Update didn't solve this issue in my environment. The patch version is now at 15.0.4649.1001.

I found this workaround and solved this issue.
