Quotes in thread titles turn into HTML-escaped entities when editing the title again

By Christian Scheuer @chrscheuer2019-04-24 19:10:54.298Z

A thread starter had quotes in their title and I needed to change something else in their title.
When I click edit, the title is showing me the & and " entities, but when resaving those will now get escaped so the displayed title ends up having the escaped entities in there.
Haha it's difficult to explain - try for yourself :)

    Thanks for reporting. Will fix. B.t.w. this has annoyed me too from time to time. I think the problem is that Talkyad unnecessarily doulble-sanitizes the title.

      FYI, this also appears in document titles (eg. " ) - may be nice to fix as part of updating document titles to match the current thread :)

        Ok thanks for the tips. I think I've fixed that, + this topic, in my current work-in-progress Git branch. The fix will be available ... probably at the end of next week. (Together with some other things that require a bit more testing.)

          @chrscheuer This should now have been fixed over at your site.

          (Self hosted servers will auto upgrade in a few days.)
