Problem with ampersand in 5.1.5


Every link with a "&" in the link gives an error message: "Error: The XML content could not be parsed. There is a problem at line 1, column 713. Parser message: Unexpected character ' ' (code 32) (missing name?) at [row,col {unknown-source}]: [1,713]" What can we do in this case to solve the problem? Replace every "&" by another character manueally is not an option.

I already posted this issue before for version 5.2. There I got the reaction that this version currently is not supported yet. But now I also have this version in the "supported" 5.1.5 version of Confluence.

Hi Luk,

The error code 32 missing name is similar to the problem documented here:

I think it's related to your issue. Check out the diagnosis section as it will help to determine if you're indeed hitting the same problem and if that is the case, you can apply the suggested resolution.

All the best!
