#10385 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

WP comment notifications entity encode blog name

Reported by: robertaccettura's profile robertaccettura Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.8.1
Component: Comments Keywords: entity, comment email regression
Focuses: Cc:


I've noticed since going from 1.8 to 1.8.1 the blog name is now escaped as entities breaking my email filters to sort blog comment/trackback email into another folder.

Give the blog a name with a character that would encoded such as:
Robert Accettura's Fun With Wordage

The email subjects will look like this:
[Robert Accettura's Fun With Wordage] Comment: "Test Post"

rather than the desired (and correct):
[Robert Accettura's Fun With Wordage] Comment: "Test Post"

It looks like get_option('blogname') is already returning it encoded. I don't see anything very obvious in the 1.8.1 changeset that looks like it would cause this regression. Hopefully I can find a few more minutes to dig.

Sorry, But version 1.8.1 hasnt been supported for awhile now, try upgrading the latest...

..Seriously though, Heres a ticket on it: #9913

Hey dd32, there never was a version 1.8.1, neither even a 1.8 :-)
I guess it was just a typo and the reported meant 2.8 -> 2.8.1

But you're right, it's a dup of the ticket you mention.

Hey TobiasBg, Was quite aware of that, I missed a ;) after that.. (afterall, Reporter got The Version in the ticket right)

Yes. I mistyped. Was looking at a Gecko 1.8 era rendering bug before I entered this one... and my number dyslexia got the best of me.

That ticket looks like it does match this issue, I'll try that patch.
