I noticed a very little something, with the wordpress engine’s output in posts. Can’t call it a bug, it will bother a verrrry small number of people, but this is still something that should be fixed, in an ideal world where everybody’s got plenty of spare time.
In short, in rare cases, I found the posts were returning special characters instead of their html encoding.
When we create a post and make some text an hyperlink, we can enter whatever we want in the title, and we can also use html encoding for special characters.
If we write
title="test", it’s all OK, the public HTML sent to the visitors is also
But if we write
title="I >3 that song(the emoticon to represent a heart), then the public HTML sent to the visitors is
I didn’t think it would pose any problem, until the day I had to open the code source of a page and copy-paste its HTML elsewhere.
I don’t even know if you see the problem, actually, haha. But, still, that shouldn’t happen, ideally, sending either html-encoded or html output already decoded, depending on the chars.
Another issue, with the new 3.5.1 media uploader, if we embed an image and write as title some text with a double quote instead of its html equivalent
", the title will be broken at the double quotes. The editor ought to convert these double quotes to their html-encoded
Sorry for the useless post, but, well, I notice something not functioning right, I know there’s a feedback forum, I take 5 minutes to make a report 🙂
