Strange Behavior for Shows with "Marvel's" in the Title

Postby elprice7345 » Fri Aug 31, 2018 3:16 pm

Many of the series that start with “Marvel’s” are displaying oddly.

For example, “Marvel's Cloak & Dagger” displays on the TVDB page correctly: https://www.thetvdb.com/series/Marvels-Cloak-and-Dagger, but the browser tab displays “Marvel's Cloak & Dagger”.

“'” is the HTML code for ‘.

I also get a series title of “Marvel's Cloak & Dagger” when search TVDB through the API.

I get similar character substitutions for other Marvel series, but not all.

The following display the HTML code:
Marvel's The Punisher: https://www.thetvdb.com/series/marvels-the-punisher
Marvel's Agent Carter: https://www.thetvdb.com/series/marvels-agent-carter

The following display the normal characters:
Marvel's Ant-Man: https://www.thetvdb.com/series/marvels-ant-man
Marvel's Avengers Assemble: https://www.thetvdb.com/series/marvels- ... s-assemble

Can someone please take a look at this?

Thanks!

SeriesName Bug with ' character

Dear Team,

I want to report a bug with the ' character. It will not be stored correctly in the database. See:

- https://www.thetvdb.com/series/tom-clan ... anslations

and the result at http://www.thetvdb.com/api/GetSeries.ph ... =Jack+Ryan

<SeriesName>Tom Clancy&#39;s Jack Ryan</SeriesName>

it should be

<SeriesName>Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan</SeriesName>

This is a bug caused by a change in the handling of html in certain fields. The administration is working on a solution.
