post titles with < followed directly by words truncates title and permalink
|Reported by:||haveboard||Owned by:|
Adding a post title that contains a "less than" symbol (<) followed directly by a word with no space in between will be truncated at the "less than" symbol.
Add new post with the following information to replicate:
Sample title: "test <post goes here"
Permalink created: http://three.jonathanfinnegan.com/2011/06/01/test/
Title displayed: "test"
I just reinstalled a clean version of WordPress 3.1.3 to verify the bug.
Visiting http://three.jonathanfinnegan.com/2011/06/01/test/ will also show you a screenshot of that post's edit page which shows the bug.
It does not seem to be a problem with a "greater than" symbol with or without a space after the symbol.
It is specific to "<wordafterlessthan" with no space after the symbol. Other test posts show appropriate behavior for > with a space or < with a space or without.
