HTML entities in order item name
« on: January 13, 2019, 07:13:37 am »
I recently updated a VM 3.2.14 to 3.4.3.9992. Everything works well but in #__virtuemart_order_items.order_item_name I get html entities instead UTF-8 characters.
Like the string is 'testáéó' and the stored version is 'testáéó'
Is there a way to get back the standard characters?

Hi

It's also in VirtueMartModelProduct
$child->product_name = vRequest::vmHtmlEntities( $child->product_name);
I wonder why VM needs this?

Any ideas with this? I removed this line from 3 of my sites because some extensions couldn't handle it well.

yepp, I am on it to remove it, but I need a tester. Please contact me in skype.

The problem behind is that Admins can store raw, always, it is not filtered. The idea is now that we use the joomla filtering only.
Should I fix your bug, please support the VirtueMart project and become a member
