Not able to see < character in front end

Drupal Answers Asked by José L. on November 5, 2021

I am running into a problem when creating content with the < character… It is quite strange as the symbol is showed in the backend, when creating the content, but it disappear when you go to /node/%nid. Actually the whole text nodes, where the symbol is, disappears. I have disabled all the filters and the problem remains…

By the way, I have a Drupal 7 installation and cKeditor module installed, but switching to plain text editor doesn’t make a difference.

Does someone has a clue of why this is happening?

Thanks in advance.


After some tests, I have discovered where the problem comes from. It has to do with the “word link” module. When word link is configured to run on a field, then it seems to remove all the text within the scope of the tags where the < appears. Now it seems it’s time to surf the word link code…

hey i have identified a scenario where this happens; if < or < is written without any space before and after this character then this ommited the whole line. Don't know why is it happening but works fine with leading and trailing space

At the end, I found a work around for the problem. In the word link configuration form we can find a "Disallowed html tags" input text box. We can add a tag there, so now, whenever I want to include the < character in my text, I wrapp the tag around it.

I know it is not the cleanest solution but it is enough to keep going until they fix the module.

Hope it can help to someone else.
