Conditionals including special characters might fail


Reported for: Toolset Views 2.5.1

Resolved in: Views 3.3 (Blocks 1.3)


Views conditionals, as well as CRED conditional groups, might fail to evaluate the condition when it contains special characters like single or double quotes, or dollar signs.

For example, the following comparisons will fail to resolve properly:
if="($(single-line) eq 'string$' )"

This is because one of the comparison strings contains a dollar sign.

This problem also affects those comparisons that check the value provided by a shortcode or a custom function. That means that comparisons checked against the value of a custom field might fail if this field value contains one of those special characters.


This issue has been resolved with the latest release of Views (3.3)
