If you make a post with the ampersand character & then in the original post it appears fine - if submitted immediately.

However there is a glitch in that if the post is subsequently edited and after submitting changes (or even if previewing) it appends the text amp; each time it is edited to the & character so that it appears as &amp & etc.

Yea I've had lots of trouble with bbcode > html > plain > html switching.. the main cause is that each time it was updates on requests for html editors which has restrictions and security has to be considered. The best way to avoid this is to always use the plain editor and only switch to html when needed.

Can you let me know your scenario for this bug? Jzk

Realised that bug is just in the Plain Editor mode.

I've tested using the HTML Editor and doesn't replicate - so I'll just use that.
