Generator changes URLs - unescapes & character
« on: June 10, 2009, 02:21:06 PM »
generator seems to work fin but unescapes ampersands in URLs - normally not a problem but the ecomm system I am using ([external links are visible to admins only]) wont allow it, example below:

[external links are visible to admins only]

is changed to

[external links are visible to admins only]

click second one and you get security warning - anyway of telling generator to keep URLs exactly as it finds them?

Hello,

links must be "urlencoded" in xml sitemaps according to protocol, you should not enter those URLs directly in browser and search engine "decode" them correspondingly when indexin gyour site.
