Special Characters must be escaped php,dreamweaver,wordpress widgetPHP,WORDPRESS,DREAMWEAVER ERROR

Four character entity references deserve special mention since they are frequently used to escape special characters:

  • “&lt;” represents the < sign.
  • “&gt;” represents the > sign.
  • “&amp;” represents the & sign.
  • “&quot; represents the ” mark.

Let’s take an example of a sitelink search box:

< script type=”application/ld+json”>

{

“@context”: “http://schema.org”,

“@type”: “WebSite”,

“url”: “https://www.akonnor.com/”,

“potentialAction”: {

“@type”: “SearchAction”,

“target”: “https://query.akonnor.com/search?q={search_term_string}”,

“query-input”: “required name=search_term_string”

}

}

< /script>

These when coded will give 4 error message or special characters must be escaped.

The correct code should be this

“&lt;”script type=application/ld+json“&gt;”
{
“@context”: “http://schema.org”,
“@type”: “WebSite”,
“url”: “https://www.akonnor.com/”,
“potentialAction”: {
“@type”: “SearchAction”,
“target”: “https://query.akonnor.com/search?q={search_term_string}”,
“query-input”: “required name=search_term_string”
}
}
“&lt;” /script“&gt;”
