Ticket #338 (fixed bug)

Quoting users with special character usernames fails

  • Created: 2011-03-08 10:45:51
  • Reported by: Oldskool
  • Assigned to: Reines
  • Milestone: 1.4.5
  • Component: parser
  • Priority: normal

Whenever a user with a quote in their username is being quoted, like this:

[quote='[Camp]']I still hate them lol[/quote]

It seems not te escape the username properly and returns this:

[Camp] wrote:

I still hate them lol

As reported by x3dt here:

Hmm, looking at it again it actually seems to break on the closing bracket (]) instead of the quote. So it seems to ignore the fact that no closing quote is used and matches the bracket as end of the quote tag.

It works fine when using " instead of '.

Is ' meant to actually work, or is " the correct way to do it? Or should we make it work for both?

I guess it should be OK to make double quotes the default behaviour whenever clicking the quote link.
