#27641 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Theme Install screen displays encoded entities

Reported by: johnbillion's profile johnbillion Owned by: nacin's profile nacin
Milestone: 3.9 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.9
Component: Themes Keywords: 2nd-opinion has-patch
Focuses: ui Cc:


The theme description (that's displayed in the left hand panel when you view a theme's details) on the theme install screen is output in the template using {{ double curly braces }} which encodes the output instead of outputting it as HTML.

The result is that ampersands show up as & instead of &. You can see this in action if you view details of "Alexandria" in the "Featured" tab.

Is it safe to use {{{ triple braces }}} instead? It should be, but could do with a second opinion as I'm not sure how much sanitising is done in the theme repo.

Hmm. Anything coming back from should be considered safe, but I do not really want to treat it as safe.
