Hi,

Trying to use the less-than sign (< or

&lt;
) as part of a value of a custom field. It doesn't work while the greater-than sign (>) does. See screenshot. What to do about this?

Cheers,
Remco

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback.
I found the issue is related to Joomla's filtering for security.
Change the code:

$field->field_value[] = $safeHtmlFilter->clean($title,'string'). '::' .  $safeHtmlFilter->clean($value,'string') . '::' .  $safeHtmlFilter->clean($disabled,'string');
to:
$field->field_value[] = $safeHtmlFilter->clean($title,'raw'). '::' .  $safeHtmlFilter->clean($value,'raw') . '::' .  $safeHtmlFilter->clean($disabled,'string');
in the file administrator/components/com_hikashop/classes/field.php and it will fix the problem.

Hi Nicolas,

Should I make an override or will this be fixed in the following update?

Cheers,
Remco

Hi,

You can directly modify the file.
This will be included in the next version so no worries for future updates.
