View Full Version : What's with all the special characters and such in descriptions
November 13th, 2005, 04:19 PM
This is a very crude interface to display special escape characters like \ in front of aprostrophes and text like this: When I say, "Show me your Marine face", this is what Lily does.This was posted as a description to a photo and this is how it looks. Doesn't display quote marks and is Very hard to read. :(
Why can't this just display the text as written instead of putting escape characters and " around quote marks. Makes reading descriptions very difficult. I hope this will be fixed soon.

Well you should never have slashes I dont
in showphoto you can change this line
$desc = convert_markups( $desc );
$desc = convert_markups( un_htmlspecialchars($desc) );

Thanks for the fix. I was getting the same in my descriptions for a picture when a member added " to their comments.
Wasn't getting any slashes.

I saw a slash in front of a sigle quote once, when I put it in a title. Didn't see it just now when I tested it so maybe it was just a glitch but it was there, once. :D

Dunno, maybe it had to do with this ...
