I am trying to match up some categories and pages with this code:
//get the title of the post
$thispage = single_cat_title('',false);
//get the page of the same title
$page = get_page_by_title($thispage) ;
However get_page_by_title() doesn't seem to work if the post title has ampersands in it. I have tried escaping etc but that doesn't seem to work.
Does anyone know of a way to make this work?
