View Full Version : & symbol in description and title being escaped
March 11th, 2009, 09:27 AM
If a user puts a & symbol in their title, eg "Table & chair for sale" the script converts/escapes this to "Table & chair for sale". Likewise if you try putting an & in the item's description it gets changed, so links like this break http://www.test.com/something.php?page=2&cat=4

Can you provide an example?
I tested the same thing and see no issue

Please try putting a link in that description, such as
i.e. a link with some &s in it. Also are you running the current stable version on there? Just wanted to check as I'm not running the beta.

Does not matter which version I am running 3.05 or 3.1 as the way we handle titles descriptions is the same in both versions.

Hi Chuck, can you test this, put a & in the description of a product - but it needs to be done on an installation that has the vb3 features enabled, i.e. not a standalone like the URL above. Also if people put double line breaks such
It's replicated in the description. I wonder whether it's something to do with the way the vB3 integrates and their WYSIWYG stuff?
