Contact form: handle square brackets in input fieds

Reported by: jeherve Owned by: blobaugh
Priority: normal Severity: normal
Plugin: jetpack Keywords: contact-form
Cc: jeherve, richard@…


Adding square brackets can be quite problematic today. Here is an example:

  1. Create a new Contact Form
  2. Set up the following content as the subject line:

[a title between square brackets]

  1. Insert the form into your post
    • The closing square bracket is automatically removed

It would be nice to support square brackets in all contact form fields, by encoding them when inserting them in the form.
