    When WordPress sends pingbacks, it seems to strip out some information of the url which it should ping.

    This happens only if there’s ampersands (&) in the url. For example url http://example.com/index.php?a=b&c=d will change to http://example.com/index.php?a=b&amp

    I see that WordPress encodes the ampersand in the url to corresponding html entity (&) but fails to ping the whole url. That’s because it strips out everything after the “;” mark.

    Is this bug or feature? I’m trying get pingbacks work on my own custom blog so it would be nice to know if there’s a fix for this.
