Support » Plugin: Social Sharing Toolkit » Bugfix: Open Graph excerpt needs htmlspecialchars()

  • Starting at line 513, the excerpt might break HTML if a read more link is included. This might result in, for example:

    <meta property="og:description" content="Lorem ipsum, etc… <a href="">read more <span class="meta-nav">→</span></a>"/>

    As you can see, this is not valid HTML.

    Fix: add htmlspecialchars():

    if ($excerpt != '') {
    				echo '
    		<meta property="og:description" content="'.htmlspecialchars($excerpt).'"/>';

    Possibly there are more vars that needs sanitizing.
