Unable to use "&" in custom taxonomy title

I noticed that if custom taxonomy (tag-like) name has "&" sign in it, I cannot add that taxonomy to my custom post type. After clicking on "Update" in cpt edit screen, the taxonomy is not saved. If "&" is removed from taxonomy title, all is working as it should.

  • Keywords reporter-feedback added

I can't reproduce this. Can you give more details?

  • You are entering the term from the taxonomy metabox generated by WP, right? (The one that looks like the Tags metabox.)
  • Does this happen only when entering an existing term? Or does it also happen when entering a new term?
  • Does autosuggest work? Are you using it to select the term?
  • Do you see anything in your error logs?
