Support » Fixing WordPress » Javascript double ampersand (&&) problem

  • Hi,

    I have just added some javascript to the wordpress sites I have set up however the && gets converted into & # 0 3 8 ; s and therefore doesn’t work.

    Using the html editor only (disabled Visual incase it was causing the problem), a page looks like …

    SOME HTML
    <script type=”text/javascript”>// <![CDATA[
    //<![CDATA[
    SOME CODE
    if ((a) && (b))
    {
    SOME CODE;
    }
    SOME CODE
    //]]>
    // ]]></script>
    SOME HTML

    I know the rest works, because if I replace if ((a) && (b)) with if (a) { if (b) etc then the page works as I expect. How can I stop the && getting replaced with & # 0 3 8 ; & # 0 3 8 ;? I know I could recode every page, but it seems a little daft that wordpress is changing my code without my wish. What else is it doing that I haven’t noticed!

    Thanks

  • Forgot to say I’ve tried with and without CDATA, with and without // in all perms and combs I can think of, but not difference, && still gets changed.

    Any cure for this double ampersand issue, placing javascript in WP? Using Genesis I can place the code in the header properly, but then things don’t work as they should…

    We don’t support Genesis so you’d be best asking your theme’s vendors.
