Fixed Special Charcaters being converted into HTML

    Version:
    1.0.0​

    Description:
    When submitting a form, special characters (e.g. &, ", etc) are converted into their HTML equivalent (e.g. &) in the destination thread.​

    Steps to Reproduce:
    Submit a form with a & symbol in the text field.

    Note: This is in the version of SimpleForms that LiquidPro provided me directly, compiled for PHP 5.2.17.​

    This bug is quite obvious in the bug submission as well. I will be investigating this and figuring out what we need to do in order to escape the characters so XenForo will display correctly.

    Thanks :)

    I hadn't even noticed that the problem had occurred in my own post here.

    A fix for this is slated for the 1.1.0 release. We do not have a date yet, but we will let you know as it gets closer.

    I second this. I would submit an Error code but is unable to locate one. Once I have established an error code Ill input it in correct section.

    We have been unable to duplicate this issue still. Please ensure you have the latest files installed. I would re-upload and overwrite just in-case.

    I've uploaded/reinstalled/etc and still have the same problems. Am I the only one reporting this still (it looked like dwdmadmac has the same issue)?
