XF 1.1 Migration issue with XenOverlay

    I recently migrated a forum between servers and am having a problem with the XenOverlay pop up for users. It looks like this.


    At first it wasn't working, then for a couple pages it seemed perfectly fine, and then it once again began looking like this. Any ideas?

    Your server may be ignoring query string parameters. I can't load your site to confirm it, but you can check by trying to re-sort a form or change search type tabs on the advanced search form.

    Yeah, the new forum is behind a hidden subdomain until everything is working. I tested with advanced search and that is indeed the issue. How would I go about fixing that?

    The previous server was running apache, the new one is on nginx.

    My nginx config has
    server {
            listen 80 default;
            server_name ----------.smashboards.com;
            access_log ----------/access.log;
            error_log ----------/error.log;
            root ----------/www/test;
            index index.php index.html index.htm;
            location / {
                    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$uri$args;
            location ~* ^.+.(jpg|jpeg|gif|css|png|js|ico|xml)$ {
                    access_log off;
                    expires 30d;
            location ~ \.php$ {
                    try_files $uri =404;
                    fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
                    include fastcgi_params;
                    fastcgi_index index.php;
                    fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
                    fastcgi_pass smashboards;
            location ~ /\.ht {
                    deny  all;
            location ~ /(internal_data|library) {

    I fixed the problem
    location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$uri$args;
    There is a very minor typo here, it should be

    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$uri&$args;
