Hi there,
I am trying to troubleshoot an issue I am having with a URL which is being passed to another page which contains a contact form. The Loop I am using is below:-

<div class="col-sm-4 staff-member search-results">
<a href='../contact-form/?emailto=[wpv-post-title]'>[wpv-post-featured-image size="custom" attr="class=image-size" width="156" height="208"]<br />[wpv-post-title output='raw']</a><br />[types field="position" id=""][/types]

The issue is when the Post Title (which is a persons name) contains an apostrophe, the URL returns a 403 Error.

I have tried adding output='sanitize' or output='raw' to the shortcode, but neither work. Is there a way to allow apostrophes to work in the URL?

The URL where the issue currently is – hidden link
The person in question is Yvonne O’Hara, all other links work OK.

Hope you can help.

Kind regards,

You need to URL encode the title (which isn't an output option of the Views shortcodes), so you would likely need to create a custom shortcode for this.

You could create a specific shortcode to output the URL encoded title, or you could register a generic shortcode to encode whatever was within it, something like:

add_shortcode('urlencode', function ($atts = [], $content = null) {

    return urlencode( wpv_do_shortcode( $content ) );

which you could then use like:


Hi Nigel,

That is fabulous. Thank you so much for that.

Have a Merry Christmas!

Best regards,


My issue is resolved now. Thank you!
