HTML special characters - $ and " being parsed to & and "
 
HTML special characters

$ and " being parsed to & and "

I'm having an issue where HTML special characters are not displaying correctly. In looking at vbulletin.com support forums, I found: That problem is due to the post being double parsed for HTML special characters.

When I turn off GAL, it stops. I also have VBSEO installed. Any ideas?

Something else is going on. Looking at the HTML source, there is the following, where a link is being inserted all over:
Code:

<a rel="nofollow" href="http://forum.carseatdata.org/autolink.php?id=21&amp;forumid=19&amp;script=showthread" target="_blank" class="gal" id="gal_21_1345_683"></a>

<a rel="nofollow" href="http://forum.carseatdata.org/autolink.php?id=21&amp;forumid=19&amp;script=showthread" target="_blank" class="gal" id="gal_21_1345_684"></a>

Go to the ACP -> Geek Auto-Linker -> Display and mouse over each keyword until you find the one where do=editgal&id=21 is in the link.

What is that keyword?

Hi, just to make sure the url is:

forum.carseatdata.org/fitting-3-seats/435-volvo-xc90-and-nissan-maxima.html

The keywords that trigger the GAL are:

hbb, HBB, Hbb, Highback booster, highback booster, high back booster

What regular expression are you using for the category with those keywords?

Tip: the default regexp is case insensitive so no need for multiple cases.

Thanks for the tip.

I am too afraid of regular expressions to touch them - so I've made no changes there - just "standard"

If it would have help to have admin access to my board, just let me know.

It would help, thanks.

GAL ID 46 was latch, LATCH, and after changing it to latch all in well. Make sure to not have the keywords end with a comma. ;)

Sweet - you rock - good find. Thanks for the help!
