It works for others. And no one of you answered about the ACL setting. I think all the changes done by jören are unecessary.

btw the colllation of your table has nothing todo with it (it only affects sorting!)
I should fix your bug, please support the VirtueMart project and become a member

I tested the ACL setting but im superadmin and all those were allowed already.

@Milbo

I did a check in the official VM3 demo, the "problem" with visible #10 and #13 is there, so there could be something wrong with the settings for the demo user.
  • Go to Product Categories and choose Wear->Mister.
  • Make a new line break
  • Save the text
  • Now You will see
    Quote
    Sample for Subcategory.
Select superordinated category in VM BE > Product Categories > Your Category in section Details > Category Ordering
  • Notice also the >
I understand that the demo user doesn´t have unlimited access. So maybe there is a clue here. If we are supposed to see >, 
 and 
 in the backend, please tell us so. Don´t tell us that no one else has the problem, because the problem is visible in the demo. It is not a biggie, but still very annoying.

Quote from my earlier post:
Quote
If I insert category descriptions that has in the Virtuemart live demo (3.0.8.0) I get 
 for each linefeed so if there is some problem with the editor. The editor used in the latest Virtuemart demo certainly has the same issue.

Sorry that I haven´t answered about the ACL. I am logged in as superuser and can only see unlimited rights on all settings for the username.

With due respect, I will use my overrides until I find out the reason why this is happening .

Exactly,
When you change as demo user something in the BE, then anything is stored encoded. The whole reason for this is to give untrusted users the possibility to create/edit products. But actually it should not be seen, there is somewhere a doubled encode.

Thanks Milbo

Now we are going somewhere. I keep my overrides for now and move on with other issues. ;)
