  • Using "&" in matrix fields

    Hello everybody,

    I,m trying to use matrix datatype to store a string that contains "&" character like this:

    http://category-xml.php?CategoryID=3121&Filter=1000036-3808734_

    After I published the object, all characters after "&" are automatically clean, leaving the field like this:

    http://category-xml.php?CategoryID=3121

    Anybody worked out this problem? Why does it happen?

    Thanks for your help

      Maybe the operator "wash" will help
