#14507 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

error when inserting an image from the media library into a post when the image has parenthesis in the title, alt or description

When you are making a post, if you add an image to the post, the image cannot have parenthesis in the title, caption, alt or description without giving a code 500 Internal Server error.

If you remove the parenthesis, the error goes away.

I also tested this on and the same error seems to happen (except I just get a blank page)

I just tested this on a wordpress 3.0 install and using parenthesis in those same areas of an image in a post seems to work just fine.

I tested with the following example code on and WordPress r17316 and couldn't reproduce.

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="176" caption="this is (the) caption"]<a href=""><img title="this is (the) title" src="" alt="this is (the) alt text" width="176" height="145" /></a>[/caption]
