Support » Plugin: Query Multiple Taxonomies » [Plugin: Query Multiple Taxonomies] Categories showing & amp; instead of &

  • Thanks for the great plugin scribu.

    Currently all of the categories that contain an ampersand are showing up as the html entity “& amp;” (without the space), for example “Art & amp; Craft”. Is there an easy way where I can just have the ampersand showing i.e. “Art & Craft”?

    While I am here, is there an easy way to change the heading “Categories” to something else such as “Subjects”? And is it possible to display post counts for each category/taxonomy? I see that you have it in the changelog, but we’re not up to version 1.6 yet.

  • I’d also love to get this to work! 🙂

    I have the same issue with an ampersand in a category title. Any progress on this?
    Thank you!

    Scribu doesn’t support this plugin anymore which is a shame because it is one of his best.

    I recently had this same issue with the HTML code appearing in place of the ampersands. This appears to be the default behaviour of the Mustache template system (Mustache is one of the best features of this plugin). You can read about this here:

    To implement this change you should follow Scribu’s guide ( for your template as with enough support Scribu might update this plugin in the future and changes to the default template would be overwritten by future updates.

    Once you have copied the template files go to /yourthemefolder/qmt-templates/list-item.html and replace {{name}} with {{{name}}}.

    This worked for me. If it works for you be sure to show your support to Scribu for developing this awesome plugin.

    If you are only filtering by 1 taxonomy (such as category) you could follow Scribu’s guide for changing templates and replace {{title}} in dropdowns.html or lists.html with the title of your choice.

    Alternatively you could create a new custom taxonomy (with a name of your choice) using the Custom Taxonomy Generator ( which will give you the code to paste into your theme’s functions.php file.

    @rob01 You’ve asked 3 different questions on 1 thread which is not cool. If your first 2 issues are now resolved then close this thread. You can add to the other threads regarding the item counts as people looking for that feature/solution in the future would not necessarily check this thread (with an unrelated title).
