Special Characters in Article Comment Sections Breaks Replying


Recommended Posts

I’ve noticed this in the past but had forgotten about it until today. You can’t use such things as “>”, and probably a few others when quoting or typing a reply in article comment sections. Are you guys not encoding the text before posting?


Anyway, it’s a bigger issue now that someone has angle brackets in their username.

Two weeks with no response. I’m guessing you guys don’t know how to fix it? Ask on the forums, many of us can help. Just don’t use special characters. ;)

Sorry really not sure how this was missed. I can only apologise and make sure that it's looked at!


@DaveLeggThink you could take a look?
