U4-5051 - Macro alias containing ':' breaks macro rendering in RTE

Created by Can Koluman 04 Jun 2014, 09:30:30 Updated by Shannon Deminick 26 Jun 2017, 05:39:42

When the macro alias contains a ':' character, e.g., This:IsAMacroName, and the macro is placed in an RTE, then after 1st publish, the macro is not rendered in the RTE.


Macro alias: This:IsAMacroName

Actual: <!--?UMBRACO_MACRO macroAlias="This:IsAMacroName" /-->

Cause: Probably somewhere, the ':' character is used as a split character.

Possible resolution: (1) Make it illegal to add ':' to a macro alias (2) Use another split character.

Workaround: Do not use ':' in a macro alias.

Many thanks, Cheers.
