WP 6.0.3: text with < > not seen

I just upgraded to 6.0.3, any text in posts/pages which has <something> no longer is seen, but is translated as HTML direct. Before with 6.0.1 it translated to &lt ;something&gt ; in HTML so it rendered again as <something>. Most annoying is, any <s> now renders as stroke text for the rest of the page.

  • Keywords reporter-feedback needs-testing-info added
  • Version set to 6.0.3

Welcome to Trac, @spiritdude, and thank you for the report!

To move this ticket forward, would you please clarify the following?

  • The HTML tags being used (i.e. are they valid tags, or literally <something>).
  • If the content is within blocks, or using the classic editor.

Steps that could be used for other contributors to reproduce this issue would be extremely valuable! Here is a link to a testing instructions template to get started.

I just ran a quick test in one of my personal sites which is running version 6.0.3 on using "<something>" in the body of a post, as well as "<s>" and "<div>" tags, and was not able to immediately reproduce it.

I was in the block editor when I ran the test.

So yes, more info on how this bug was created would be helpful.

@ironprogrammer @BrentLeavitt I was able to get proper output again after I disabled "Easy Table of Contents" plugin, not sure how Block Editor and that plugin managed to render "<something>" into actual HTML <something> (without html escaping) instead of &lt;something&gt; - will investigate. Thanks for such quick response. I was very surprised most of my content got scrambled after "upgrading", and now it seems a rogue plugin caused it, I will contact the devs and see if this is related to Block Editor or is just plugin centric.

The issue is resolved, it was the "Easy Table of Contents" plugin, with update of the plugin the issue is resolved.
