Pingback fails due to apostrophe in HTML comment?
|Reported by:||Viper007Bond||Owned by:||josephscott|
My Video Quicktags plugin has had on and off reports about it breaking the sending of pingbacks.
A user of the plugin has reported to me that the issue is due to an apostrophe in an HTML comment inserted into the <head> by my plugin: http://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/128694
we analysed the Ping Bug of your Plugin. XMLRPC wants to check the page that is pinging and returns the Error 17: "The source URL does not contain a link to the target URL, and so cannot be used as a source."
The Problem is the "'" in <!-- Viper's Video Quicktags line 2651 of Version 6.2.5
When XMLRPC executes "$linea = strip_tags( $linea, '<a>' );" and your Plugin is running only other stuff will show. Not right the Content.
Assuming this was indeed the cause, shouldn't WordPress be smarter than that?
