Why is the cPanel re-direct tool encoding my URL?

    :confused:

    Hello,

    I have been using the cPanel re-direct tool successfully for a few days now, but suddenly it started encoding some of the characters in my URLs for all new re-directs I make. For example:

    www.domain.com/mens_timberland_shoes.html

    should be re-directed to:

    www.domain.com/mens_brands.php?category=Mens&brand=Timberland

    but it goes to this one instead:

    www.domain.com/mens_brands.php%3fcategory=Mens/mens_timberland_shoes.htmlbrand=Timberland

    I used the cPanel re-direct tool here:

    www.domain.com:2082/frontend/rvlightblue/mime/redirect.html

    The strange thing... is that I was able to get a bunch of links to re-direct successfully... and now the characters are being encoded on all the new re-directs I am making... (but the old ones work fine that are exactly the same)

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks
