Been using my search form for the past year with no problem - today when we search between 2 dates it is producing a 404 error - page not found.  Anyone have any ideas what could be wrong?

What's the URL that's getting produced that results in the 404 error?

Hi Rob its (ive removed the first part of the url as its behind a membership  =     /book out quantitive data/?start=[3660 format=Y-m-d sanitize_url=1]&end=[3661 format=Y-m-d sanitize_url=1]   Thanks this hasn't been changed

The spaces in "/book out quantitive data/" ... are bad, What does the URL look like when it appears in the browser location bar?

thanks for that the url reads /book-out-quantitive-data/ so I've added the "-" back again and it works im wondering why the dash removed itself? ........ I'm the only admin so i know know ones been changing things and it had been working fine for over a year. a mystery ............

I can't explain it because it seems odd that someone would manually go in and replace the dashes with spaces, unless it was just to drive you crazy...
