Support » Plugin: M Chart » Issue with quotation marks in data set

  • Resolved Biranit

    Hi,

    If one of the entries in a data set has ” in it – once the chart is saved (as draft or any other format), the page is broken, there’s no javascript and in fact the only thing left to do is delete that chart from the list of charts and start again, this time avoiding or finding workarounds for the straight quotation marks.

    In Hebrew names and title, quotation marks are very common. The ultra religions party is called ש"ס for example; the title doctor is ד"ר; etc. Additionally, Hebrew keyboards don’t have slanted quotation marks except on a Mac.

    So this is a big issue for us and I wonder if it’s not easily fixable by running htmlspecialchars() or esc_attr() or something similar on the dataset when it’s saved?

    Thank you,

    Biranit

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Any chance I could get a sample data set from you I could use while working to fix this?

    Please feel free to email me at jamie AT methnen.com with any details.

    Once I fix it I’d love to send you the fix and have you test it out before I release it out into the wild.

    @biranit I sent you an email with a fix a few days ago, did you have a chance to check that out? Didn’t get a reply from you of any kind so figured I’d message here too just in case you missed it.
