I am using the 2.1 release of vanilla.

I would like to report a bug in the Applicant list shown in Manage Applicants in the part where is displayed the answer to the question 'why do you want to join?'

An applicant entered the following text:

I <3whatever about my site

But in /dashboard/user/applicants the text displayed was: I

Probably the '<' creates a problem



  • @cocomang that's prob because of the input formatter. I think it identifies the '<' as a HTML opening tag. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

    Gdn::Text strips it out on display. it is however in your database as entered.

    you could change the definition of why do you want to join and also say please don't use emoticons. <3

    and you could post the problem on github if you haven't already.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
