Are there issues defaulting a label on a new blog in 6.2.1?

I created a button to create a new blog entry in a specific space using the following code:


This code works fine.  I adjusted the code to default the label using the labelsString.  I also tried labels-String but still got the following error:

The reference to entity "labels-String" must end with the ';' delimiter. (400)

I tried it with both labelsString and labels-String





Any ideas on why I am getting this error?

Hello there David!
I am not really sure on how to replicate this behaviour so we can start looking for a solution.

Could you share with here with the Community how you created this button?

Just take care to not disclose any sensitive information or something that your organization policies does not allow.

Let us know if this was done using a macro, plugin or any other way!

@Diego I was able to replicate something similar by simply pasting the equivalent URL into my page. 

I am currently running Confluence 6.10.0 and while the post is created, using the following URL doesn't append the label (even after saving, no hidden field of labels are included or anything like that):


and the same URL using &labels-String also fails to add the label to the new page
