Problem Description:

When multiple form fields of the same name are posted the resulting array splits the items containing commas. This is a change of behavior from CF 11 and seems to defeat the purpose of sameFormFieldsAsArray.

Steps to Reproduce:

POST stuff=foo&staff=bar,baz

Actual Result:

stuff = ["foo", "bar", "baz"]

Expected Result:

stuff = ["foo", "bar,baz"]

Any Workarounds:



I entered a typo under "Steps to Reproduce:" POST stuff=foo&stuff=bar,baz

Not sure why this is marked as fixed. It still appears to be an issue as of ColdFusion 2018 Update 7. Adobe sent me a patch that you can copy into the \cfusion\lib\updates\ folder that will temporarily fix the issue, but that was back in December and multiple Updates have been released since that time, none of which have resolved the problem.
