On this page if you hover the mouse on the photos under "Who you’ll work with you" you'll notice the HTML entities are displayed:

i.e.:

André Prata
instead of:
André Prata

Is this a bug ?

    @rene yeah, this is most likely encoded in the server side. :) – Shadow Wizard Sep 27 '15 at 18:06

    @ShadowWizard I assumed that but you never know with Internet Explorer ... – rene Sep 27 '15 at 19:07

    Yup, bug. We'll look into it shortly. – Max Sep 28 '15 at 0:36

This was a small bug with a data sync job which reads from SQL Server and writes to a JSON blob - effectively, the name got HTML-encoded twice.

Should be fixed.

  • I just checked and it looks the same as before careers.stackoverflow.com/jobs/93083/front-end-engineer-feedzai – Pedro Lobito Sep 28 '15 at 14:44
  • Ah, you're right - it's fixed on the company page but didn't sync to the job listing yet. There's a task running every few minutes to sync it but I probably can trigger it manually, stand by.. – Max Sep 28 '15 at 14:45
  • It's actually cached and should update within the next hour or so. I'm too scared to mess with the Redis cache directly. :) – Max Sep 28 '15 at 14:50
  • Go it, I'll check it later! – Pedro Lobito Sep 28 '15 at 14:54
  • One hour passed and it's still there. That cache is stubborn... :) – Shadow Wizard Sep 28 '15 at 15:47
  • Stubborn indeed! Will have another look this afternoon. – Max Sep 28 '15 at 15:52
  • Three hours and still no cigar... looking forward to your afternoon. (here it's evening by now :)) – Shadow Wizard Sep 28 '15 at 18:08

    Needed another nudge, fixed on both the company page and job listing now. – Max Sep 28 '15 at 18:44
  • It seems fixed ! – Pedro Lobito Sep 28 '15 at 20:41
  • Any chance your nudge caused something else to break? :) – Shadow Wizard Sep 30 '15 at 5:59
  • @ShadowWizard nope, unrelated but possibly similar. :) – Max Sep 30 '15 at 14:29
  • @Max I blame caching ;) – Shadow Wizard Sep 30 '15 at 14:36

They are missing

<meta charset="UTF-8">

or

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>

That is not problem in your Browser. Problem is with data entered or in database


Check this. (below code with there output)

  1. &amp;#233; - Out put &amp;#233;
  2. &#233; - output é

Solution

  1. Correct the database field
  2. Change &amp;#233; to e&#769;// output

    Appreciate the effort, you were very close. :) The data was actually correct in the database but then got HTML-encoded twice instead of just once. – Max Sep 28 '15 at 14:44
