TinyMCE code plugin: Is it possible to display the special characters as characters and not the entity number when viewing source code?



When we upgraded to EPi11 from EPi10 the source code view using the "code" plugin started to display html entity number instead of the actual characters for special characters. Is it possible to have the source code view display the characters again and not the html entity number?

I looked into the settings now and it seems that only the width and height options are possible.

However, the question still stands. Is it possible to show characters and now html entities some other way?

There are some of the reserved symbols that must be converted into their html representation. If you see, when I added these symbols


These were converted into following (while viewing in source code).

But is there a configuration to show html entities as their actual characters while viewing source code? In the project I am working on there used to be no html entities in source code view. But after upgrading from EPi 10 to EPi 11 the source code view starting displaying html entites instead

You can use configuration option "entity_encoding"



entity_encoding : "raw"
