Order confirmation email display issue

Marketpress: Version 2.9.4 updated on 4/20/2014

After my last update to V2.9.4 order confirmation emails are showing the code for ' as &#8217

See examples:


A new order (cd98378c29fb) was created in your store:

Order Information:
	1 @ 10.00	10.00 USD	From The Sea To The Shore
	1 @ 20.00	20.00 USD	Alex Beaton's Scotland DVD
	Subtotal:	30.00 USD
	Shipping:	5.00 USD
	Taxes		2.39 USD
	Order Total:	37.39 USD


A new order (591221781eb6) was created in your store:

Order Information:
	1 @ 20.00	20.00 USD	Live In Concert
	1 @ 20.00	20.00 USD	Alex Beaton&#8217s Scotland DVD
	Subtotal:	40.00 USD
	Shipping:	6.00 USD
	Order Total:	46.00 USD

I've looked through the code but can't find anything to cause this.
Your guidance is appreciated.

Note: I removed the ; after &#8217 to get it to display in the code blocks above.

    I browsed the wordpress_post table and found under post_type that the post_content serialized array has the actual ' character prior to V 2.9.4 and the html entity &#8217 after. The email creation code in marketpress.php does not decode it for email content.

    As a simple solution I added
    str_replace('’', '\'',$data['name'])
    to the email creation logic in marketpress.php.

    If entities are added to other fields in the database, then there should be a more global solution at least for formatting all data for proper display of email.

    Hi Merv,

    Thanks for the solution. Here's what I've got in place for set to release later today - line 4588 ish of marketpress.php:

    return wp_mail($to, $subject, $msg);

    changed to:

    return return wp_mail($to, $subject, html_entity_decode($msg));

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
