Vers. 4.0 - handling '&' character in image name
« on: May 20, 2010, 10:11:35 PM »
The generator, when confronted with a page name containing the '&' character replaces it in the xml with '&'. I know --- I should never have used this character in a file name.  :-[ . My problem is that when handling images, the generator is not making this same substitution for the '&' character, and I therefore end up with a misconfigured xml.

Will/Can the generator be modified to make the substitution in imagefile names, wherever it encounters the & character, or am I stuck with editing the xml prior to pinging the search engines?

please try to re-download generator package, replacements should be applied now.
Note howevery that it's recommended to have correctly urlencoded links originally on your pages (i.e. use "&" instead of "&").
