When a node title has a single quote in its title, it translates to ' in the subject of the message.

Is there a way to correct this ?

Thanks a lot

Hi, can you provide more information about how to reproduce this? How are you showing node titles in the subject of the message?

When I include a single quote in the subject line of a message, it appears properly.

Reopening, I can reproduce this.

Create a rule which sends a PM to a role / user with the field title as the subject line, and have an apostrophe in the title. prints out with ' eg. Pkil's custom content becomes Pkil's custom content in the subject line.

I'm finding the same problem. if a user sends a PM in reply to a node (forum topic for instance) and the subject of the forum topic contains an apostrophe ( ' ) such as Biker's the pm that gets sent shows the subject as Biker & # 0 3 9 ; s.

I've had to add spaces between the explanation of the code above, otherwise this forum converts the code back to an apostrophe!

Is there a fix for this please.

Same here. I have content which may contain any title such as: Chip's n Dip's

When I select "Contact author" the Subject is auto-filled with the title and looks like this:

Chip's n Dip's

Or it looks like that to the recipient. Can't remember. I'll test and check.

I've tested and the character code replaces the apostrophe in the subject for both the sender and recipient.

Looks really ugly.

BTW: this issue is carried over to the latest version 7.14.

Was this solved?
I am using 6.33 and I have a view that uses the title of the page to create the url for a video link
title=Water: That's Real Value&inline=true#colorbox-inline-6">Water: That's Real Value

What should I do to to fix the problem with the view?

A quick solution, when entering your text use the Alt + 0180. (Hold the alt key down while typing 0180, then release) It produces the closest appearance to apostrophe.

I can reproduce the problem myself, in my case, I am sending the messages via custom code, so I could easily change the replacing token to use ! instead of : or % - this means the value is passed "as-is", but that might be a security issue.

I have the same problem, in my case my site is full with plant names and the subject of a message is always the name of a plant. For example: Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'. When using it with a token as subject for a message it looks like: Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'
Any ideas?
