#7074 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Templates should utilize esc_attr when setting a link title attribute to bp_group_name

Reported by: garrett-eclipse's profile garrett-eclipse Owned by: boonebgorges's profile boonebgorges
Milestone: 2.6 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.5.0
Component: Groups Keywords:



I noticed in group-header.php and I'm sure it's in several other places, that the bp_group_name is being applied to the title attribute of a link without any handling, should employ esc_attr.

<a href="<?php bp_group_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php bp_group_name(); ?>">

Should be pushed through esc_attr either in the template by using bp_get_group_name instead or by creating a new bp_group_name_attr function.

@espellcaste Can you please open a separate ticket with that info? I don't think there's time to address this for 2.6, and I don't want it to be lost.

@boonebgorges #7132 created and templates with the suggested changes added. I'm still to check and confirm if more templates needs escaping changes.
