WordPress html block breaks scripts.

Description

I put in a custom html block and it breaks the script I enter, by turning && into &&

To test this, just enter this in HTML block on a new page:

<script>
jQuery(function($){
  if(vA!=win && vB!=win && vC==win && vD!=win)  console.log('else');
  if(vA<500 && vB<500 ) console.log('some other case');
});
</script>

For whatever reason, WP chooses to turn my script to & entity on some lines:

jQuery(function($){
  if(vA!=win && vB!=win && vC==win && vD!=win)  console.log('else');
  if(vA<500 &#038;&#038; vB<500 ) console.log('some other case');
});

It looks like it may be detecting the < as an opening tag.

@programmin you can try this

<script>
jQuery(function($){
  if(vA!=win && vB!=win && vC==win && vD!=win)  console.log('else');
  if(`vA<500 && vB<500`) console.log('some other case');
});
</script>

  • Component changed from General to Formatting
  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed

This was reported as early as #43785, so I'll close as a duplicate.

Also, if you can enqueue the script instead of adding it inside a block, that should be better (especially because the example relies on jQuery).
