When I insert a link into the editor, the & characters in the query string are getting converted to &

Mostly, I don't mind - the links still work on web pages. However, in some email clients (looking at you, Outlook...) the & entities break the link

I am not using the ConvertCharactersToEntities filter

Is there a way I can prevent this from happening?

I tried this on the content filter demo - I turned off ConvertCharactersToEntities and characters still got converted

Hi Dan,

You can try implementing a custom content filter like suggested in this forum thread:

I will try that

But I am confused - if the ConvertCharactersToEntities filter is not being used, why are the & characters getting converted? It looks like only <, >, and & get converted. Is this a browser behavior?

Hi Dan,

Yes, this is a browser behavior, which can be reproduced in a standard editable iframe. You can test it in the following link, the generated html is shown after clicking subsequently the "Set content in the IFRAME" and "Show FRAME HTML" buttons:
