When you create post with title 1080x2340 or '400x500', WordPress changes the 'x' to Multiplication sign (×) while output.

How to reproduce:

1) Create a post with Title '400x500' (Remember you need to put the 'x' between numbers without any spaces just like the example I gave).

2) Now open the post in browser you would able to the see 'x' is transformed to multiplication sign (×)


Pictures for better understanding.

@dibbyo456 Although I was not able to reproduce the issue at my end, I believe
html_entity_decode() in your template code could be sufficient enough to solve your question.

Honestly, I do not see any sort of issue or so.

Hello @dibbyo456, welcome to WordPress Trac!

The behaviour you're seeing is by design and is produced by wptexturize() which is hooked into the the_title filter.
