Support » Plugin: Attachments » Scandics breaks the plugin.

  • Resolved jimihenrik



    I’m building a custom gallery with this awesome plugin and it works fine except for pulling scandics (Ää, Öö) from my caption field.

    You can see the problem here:

    Also if I try to include character Åå in the caption field, it clears the whole caption on article update.

    Anything I can do?


    Edit: for clarity, I’m using the most recent version of WP as well as the plugin.

    I have this in my functions.php (Note that those “Liitä” etc are working fine)

    define( 'ATTACHMENTS_DEFAULT_INSTANCE', false );
    function gallery_attachments( $attachments )
      $args = array(
        'Galleria' => 'My Attachments',
        'post_type' => ('post'),
        'filetype' => ('image'),
        'note' => 'Liitä gallerian kuvat tähän!',
        'button_text' => __('Liitä', 'attachments'),
        'modal_text' => __('Liitä', 'attachments'),
        // fields for this instance (array)
        'fields'        => array(
            'name'  => 'caption',                      // unique field name
            'type'  => 'text',                           // registered field type (field available in 3.0: text)
            'label' => __( 'Kuvateksti', 'attachments' ), // label to display
      $attachments->register( 'gallery_attachments', $args ); // unique instance name
    add_action( 'attachments_register', 'gallery_attachments' );

  • Confirming this. I’m also using latest versions of wp and the plugin.

    Also, can’t use any html tags (like strong or em) anymore, the entities are getting encoded to &lt and &gt.

    By editing the raw custom field value I can get the entities (including scandics) to show correct, but they get messed up if I save the whole page again (== custom field gets updated).

    Sorry about the issue! Those entities should be properly handled during saving and retrieval, I will take a look and get a fix posted as soon as I can!
