Completely disable text formatting....? (2 posts)

    Hey guys... bit of a higher grade question here, I fear...

    In my WordPress posts I need to have a call to an iFrame that has URL parameters. Something like:

    <iframe src="http://www.site.com/register/index.cfm?rsid=15&bi=269">

    Now it pulls in the iFrame content just fine... The problem is that WordPress renders the & in the URL as & # 0 3 8 ; (without the spacing) and thus makes the URL parameters unusable.

    Is there anyway to COMPLETELY disable the text editing in WordPress. I'm not using the Rich Text Editor. I basically need the input area of wordpress to be a standard text box that doesn't parse any of the information in it... just renders it 'as is'...

    I'd appreciate any help in this regard.

    You mean that the ampersands are being escaped into their HTML entity. This is actually a good thing: you should always escape any '&' characters in URLs when you're writing HTML.

    Imagine you had a url that looked like:


    The browser doesn't know whether you mean that there is a variable called 'nbsp' or whether you want a non-breaking space in the URL.



    Now there's no confusion.

    Have you noticed that it's not working?
