'>' open carrot shows up as > in code, broken on CMS pages only


#1

I’m a sad panda,
I must get > &gt ; to render as ‘>’ on SOURCE code WITHOUT manually exporting code…

It need sto go in CMS section

  1. text block does not work on static or cms
  2. p (paragraph)does not work on static or cms
  3. Embed as text does not work on CMS container, it works only on static pages, but does not work on CMS pages!
  4. CMS Multi Reference > does not work

:frowning:

What it should say >

{{{ $user-**>**shippingAddress()->street_1 }}}

{{{ $user->shippingAddress()-**>**street_2 }}}

-&gt ; is bad
-> is good

HTML embedd element is not allow me to do it

text and

paragraph blocks render source as &gt it needsto render ‘>’

I must get designer to publish as ‘>’ on publish without manually exporting

It looks correct on designer & preview

But in source its converted to dreded &gt
image

But in code, 'it NEEDS to say ‘>’ not ‘&gt’

I cant find anywhere to set this.

EMbedd does not work because in CMS

If we resolve this, I’ll be a happy panda

OR

How do I custom code to rewrite all instances of -gt; to -> on SOURCE code?

Hi @miekwave

Currently, special characters like the open carrot are unavailable within the CMS, and it is something that our engineers are looking into making available.

A possible workaround is to use Javascript, or jQuery, to replace > with the open carrot: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/17966089/how-to-replace-and-with-lt-and-gt-with-jquery-or-js

Would you be able to provide your Read-Only link?

I’d be happy to take a look for you as soon as I can.

Hi @miekwave

Thank you so much for the detailed thread.

As noted before, special characters like the open carrot are unavailable within the CMS, and it is something that our engineers are actively looking into making available.

Though I do not have a timeline on when it would be available, I’d be happy to let you know as soon as possible.

I’ve gone ahead and updated your request to “Custom Code” so that our community can help in this instance with a custom code implementation.

You are not alone in thinking this would be great to have in Webflow. It is definitely something you can vote for on our Webflow Wishlist
