percent character bug

Postby kangoo » Fri Jun 17, 2011 10:05 am

Hi,
I have noticed a strange behaviour when someone uses a "%" character + a number in comments (e.g., 25%). The text of the comment sometimes turns into a hyperlink and some parts of that is not visible, and sometimes it just displays a part of the text, and the percent character next to a number is not visible. The text of the comment technically still is in the database and can be edited via control panel, but as long as percent sign is in the text, it is being displayed only partly.

I am using PivotX 2.5.5.

Thanks.

I assume you mean version 2.2.5?

I cannot reproduce your problem on 2.2.6 (MySQL). I've added a comment with text and 25% in it and it is displayed normal.
I am using extended comment form. Are you using a specific template? Perhaps a link would work to show the problem.

Yeah, i meant 2.2.5.

I guess the problem is with "Textile" class, that uses different characters to format the text (e.g., it makes ??text?? turn into text). It also uses % sign to add span tag (%(bob)span% turns into <span class="bob">span</span>). I would like to make it stop using % sign, but I don't know how.

Your reasoning could be true. But I don't have any experience with Textile so I hope someone else has and can answer your question......

Please upgrade to 2.2.6. This sounds like one of the bugs we fixed.
