#210 open

form.submit inappropriately escapes field values

Reported by _Kevin | March 29th, 2009 @ 11:38 AM

after using fill_in to populate a field with an email address: "nowhere@nowhere.com".

On submission, the server gets:


The live form results in "nowhere@nowhere.com" being submitted.
(this was a post request, FYI).

    Thanks for the patch. It'll help me to pull it in easier if you can put in a spec that shows the problem and then a commit that fixes it. I know it's annoying but things like that speed my job up. With a patch and a test it becomes a simple run without fix, yeah, that's wrong, run with test, yep that fixes it and everythign else passes. Without, well it just makes it harder.

    I'd appreciate it if you could. I'll get to it when I can if not. I know how things go. Just trying to help us both.

    Need to verify and pull in but looks good at first look.

    I've merged it back into my local 'rack' branch; please hold on until it is merged in master. Consider I am taking care of this :)

    Are you keeping track of what tickets you need to close out when you finally merge your branch back in? Might be a good idea to either track in history or in the lighthouse ticket for the rack test.

    Not yet. I'll get through the tickets and assign to myself those related to rack ASAP
