flyout-menu.xml special characters
« on: May 21, 2019, 03:15:50 PM »
Hi everyone

Maybe somebody has experience on how to treat special characters within the flyout-menu.xml.

I would like to use "" or maybe a . Unable to render correctly. You can view it under Navigation Isobaren http://meteo.widen-online.ch/wxisobarendwd.php?lang=en.

Have a nice day.

Try this: @

IE: <item caption="Home &#169;" link="index.php" title="Home Page"/>

edit: I get the same render issue you get.... Mhhh

Looks like the xml encode/unicode is not rendering properly... I am not a web experts so I would probably wait for some of the veterans to chime in.

Ahh.. because of XML parsing rules, you have to 'double encode' Ampersands

So for <item caption="Home ©" link="index.php" title="Home Page"/> make it

<item caption="Home &amp;amp#169;" link="index.php" title="Home Page"/>

Replace all  '&' with '&amp;amp' in the XML and it will work.

Thanks a lot to all contributing to this topic.

This worked for me:
Code: [Select]
<item caption="Isobaren" title= "Isobaren heute">
  <item caption= "Isobaren &amp;#169; MeteoGroup" title="Isobaren1" link="wxisobaren.php"/>
  <item caption= "Isobaren &amp;#169; DWD"  title="Isobaren2" link="wxisobarendwd.php"/>
</item>

Probably running in issues now with the language translations. Anyway, it's very much fun.

Cheers
