Wordpress editor seems to change every ampersand (&) to &

is there any way to get rid of that function or something? I really need the only & to make my variables work.

what kinds of variables? Try putting & html editor. –  Sisir Jun 23 '12 at 7:50
I have a plugin so when I´m in the post editor I insert the shortcode with a "&" but in the URL output the "&" changes to & instead.. –  Fredrik Weiland Jun 23 '12 at 7:56

1 Answer 1

This might be an obvious answer, but have you actually tried to save the post and view it and see if the shortcode works?

As far as I understand it, & is the correct way for & to display, no matter what its doing, otherwise the code would be invalid. The shortcode plugin should be coded to anticipate this, and work just fine.

What is the exact name of the shortcode plugin you are using?

It´s not a shortcode plugin itself. It´s a Uji Countdown plugin for Wordpress. –  Fredrik Weiland Jun 23 '12 at 23:09
