Forum OpenACS Development: Re: HTML quoting in the templating system
It's not a fix because when trying to fix some things it breaks others.
The correct fix is using ad_quotehtml where appropriate.
If someone want to continue with this hack,
Why instead declaring a function that does nothing "noquote" you declare a function that does something "quote", this way we finish with the overquote problem easier.
I'm almost sure using ;quote instead of ;noquote is far better idea
Why are you not using ;quote?
Did you discard ;quote in favor of ;quote or you didn't think it at first?
I prefer instead of "quote", "convert_utf8tohtmlutf8" or "convert_texttohtml" but that's a naming convention that only would help OpenACS beginners
Doing it the other way around makes the failure mode silent and exposes your site to a security risk.
