WordPress fails to ping whole url if there's an ampersand
|Reported by:||unpix||Owned by:||markjaquith|
I have a custom blog and I noticed a problem with pingbacks from Wordpress blogs. When writing a post in Wordpress, it encodes the "&" properly to
However, when it tries to ping the url, it uses the url where the ampersands are encoded as html entities. This causes Wordpress to strip out every GET variable after the first one, for example:
URL should be: http://example.com/index.php?a=b&c=d but it is http://example.com/index.php?a=b&
So Wordpress misses everything after the first variable in the url and fails to ping the right url.
I can see this from my server logs.
