Custom attribute with leading space


I’m using the jQuery plugin Form Validator. For that an input has a custom attribute:

Name: data-sanitize-insert-right
Value:  Uhr – see the leading whitespace here!

On publishing the site, webflow trims the leading whitespace and it becomes to <input … data-sanitize-insert-right=“Uhr”> instead of <input … data-sanitize-insert-right=" Uhr">.

Is there any way to prevent webflow doing this?


Hey @Nine,

Maybe try using the html entity: &#32; ?


Unfortunately not. The entity is displayed as &#32; and not converted to a space :frowning:


can you share a read-only link?

#5 > page “Event erfassen” | input #Agenda-Zeit


Can you try Shift + Space


Shift + Space does not help :frowning:


I can of course replace the “input” with an “HTML embed” – but that’s just a workaround and not webflow like :wink:


That’s a bummer :frowning_face:
maybe @WebDev_Brandon or @PixelGeek will have a solution?


Try this (set by JS)

copy-paste before body

   $('#Agenda-Zeit').attr("data-sanitize-insert-right", " Uhr");

Should work fine (The change happens after the page loads).
