Hello CI'ers,
I'm trying to embed a forum app into a codeigniter page. The problem I am running into is that the app is producing tradition query string calls which CI is not allowing.. ie. I get a 404.

When I (globally) allow traditional query strings in config.php:

$config['enable_query_strings'] = TRUE;

The site doesn't work.

I then tried overriding the config in just the forum controller itself:

$this->config->set_item('enable_query_strings', TRUE);

That did not work.

Any ideas?
FYI, this is an example of a call that is generated by the app that returns a 404:

The same call without the query string:

Works fine.
Strange thing.. if I change one character of that first URL, it works fine.. it's the '&' char. before 'remote':

I then tried allowing '&' characters via the config.php as such:
$config['permitted_uri_chars'] = 'a-z 0-9~%.:_\&\=\-';

This did not work.
I solved this in config.php by doing:
$config['enable_query_strings'] = FALSE;

$config['permitted_uri_chars'] = 'a-z 0-9~%.:_\&\=\-';

Then editing the .htaccess file for the app that was sending the query string call... seems to work.
