Module HTML Editor Hex Encoding

    Hi all. We are using a module named "IndooGrid" which has a column editor for custom HTML.  When we properly set the HTML it gets later hex encoded it and presents the hex code in the column as text instead of interpreting the HTML properly.  For example, we type "< p >< strong >test< /strong >< /p >" (spaces intentional to avoid html interpretation) but then later it gets changed to "%3cp%3e%3cstrong%3etest%3c/strong%3e%3c/p%3e" and that is what appears in the column instead of the intended "test".  Any suggestions of what we can try?  Thanks.

      TBH this is something you better ask the module vendor / developer.

        This is NOT an answer to your question, but I hope that it has some helpful suggestions.

        First, it will help to know which version of DNN you are using.

        Second, IndooGrid is obsolete and not supported any longer. I think it's been dead for over 5 years.

        So, your best bet is to bite the bullet and find something else as a replacement. There a commercial products that have "grid" in their names, and they might be helpful. The open source Report module for DNN may he a choice. I'd probably opt to use either 2sxc or Open Content. Both of them are also open source.

        Anyway, going with something that is modern and supported if a much better choice than struggling to find a work around for a dead product. It will also put you on a path that will allow you to upgrade DNN.

        I'm assuming that your DNN installation is also way out of date. You really need to update that for security and overall performance issues.
