I am attempting to verify my blog through the http://validator.w3.org/
It gives me a great deal of errors because instead of using th & a m p ; (no spaces) in a php url that passes variables, it puts in only the & .
I have been reading and googling all night to see how I can fix this.
It's only in my text widgets. If I go in and specify the & amp ;, then I save it, it saves that way okay to the DB, I can see it both in the DB and when I validate it, it validates fine.
However, if I go to the widgets and resave, it resaves it to the DB with just a & and then doesn't validate anymore.
So why is wordpress and the widgets reinterpreting it as &?
I would really love this to validate.
