  • Ticket #18056 – Description

    initial v1  
    22
    33The code now is:
    4 
     4{{{
    55<dc:creator><?php the_author() ?></dc:creator>
    6 
     6}}}
    77Shouldn't this be:
    8 
     8{{{
    99<dc:creator><![CDATA[<?php the_author() ?>]]></dc:creator>
    10 
     10}}}
    1111Or:
    12 
     12{{{
    1313<dc:creator><?php htmlspecialchars(the_author()) ?></dc:creator>
    14 
     14}}}
    1515This might be a result of a custom author plugin not escaping these characters on the way into the database, but Wordpress should handle this more robustly to prevent plugin authors from messing things up like this.
