#126 Metadata - Key/Value URI renders dash for slash

Metadata (3)

Have a look in the ITaaU blog at this post.


See how the metadata is rendered.

Cause is excessive escaping, probably in prop_blog.php line ~116

    We will keep this as a known issue.
    If we fix it we will break any Trove that already has /'s turned to -'s.
    We will address this issue in a future release when we migrate key/value from XML strings to tables.

    The / in - has been fixed as URLs can now be handled as metadata values because of the use of URL encoding and decoding on the metadata key-value index pages. Problems with escaping of single quote marks has been dealt with and double quote marks (like angle brackets) are not permitted for metadata values.

    Tim: Can you confirm you are happy with this fix on aurora.

    Seems to work properly now on Aurora.
    Made a new post with an URL as a key value which was stored and rendered and remembered upon edit correctly.

    Went back and edited the original test case where '-' had been substituted for '/' and put the '/'s back successfully.
    The changes were saved and remembered upon re-edit.
