WP Supersized
Using single quote mark (and other characters?) in WP caption breaks slider (2 posts)

    Hi there,

    So the following in the WP image caption field leaves the slider stuck on the spinning wheel:

    <a href="about"><span>TV history in the making</span> The story behind New Zealand's largest live studio</a>

    This is fine:

    <a href="about"><span>TV history in the making</span> The story behind New Zealand\'s largest live studio</a>

    Would be great if I didn't have to resort to escaping characters, editing html is tricky enough for editors as is!

    Thanks

    The apostrophe issue is not unique to this plugin and is due to the way metadata is stored in php serialized format into mysql. Developers could base64 encode the data to alleviate the issue but that further complicates site migration as data would require decoding before unpacking the serialized string, updating url in the array, reserializing then recoding to base64 before saving to the database export file.
