How does slim interpret this URI?

I have a URI like this:


The above tow work fine, Returns particular Product details and list of products respectively.
But in the first URI, if I give #### instead of product ID (/Categories/categoryid/Products/####/ , it still returns products list and considers the following URI by default ignoring ####


Is this expected. I am using the latest version.

    This should be the correct behaviour, since the browser interprets # as if it was empty, I am sure if you try this with another website you would get the same result.

    This will give you all the questions, same as just the url without the ####

    Also, /Something/%%%/ throws

      Bad request
      Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.

    Should this be handled by Slim?

    I will answer this the same as the previous, if you try this on any website the web server will catch it first and if it doesn't look like a normal request it will return an error before it even gets to Slim. e.g.

    Can you explain why you would need any of these symbols in the URL?
