Apostrophe in SEO site description

Hello Weebly Community, 

 

Does anyone knows why it is impossible to use an apostrophe (" ' ") in the SEO site description? 

 

When I use an apostrophe, it appears as " &#39 " instead of " ' ".

 

Example:

 

"Le blog d'information juridique et fiscale des professionnels de santé d'exercice libéral (médecins, chirurgiens dentistes, sages femmes, infirmiers, masseurs kinésithérapeutes, professions paramédicales, etc.)"

 

Thank you very much for your help.

 

Best regards,

 

Adrien

Hey @Altomique! You might see that in the source code of your live site, but it should display fine when sharing to Facbook or in Google search results.  The reason your quotes and apopstrophes look like that is to prevent breaking the HTML code of your live site.

I only have this issue with the SEO site description. Other SEO features (such as blog articles SEO description) is fine.

 

I try to change it but when I click on save, the apostrophe is always replaced by "'"

 

Any tips?

 

Again, thank you very much for your help.

Sorry to hear that, @Cornucopia. It looks like our engineers are looking into this, although I don't have an ETA one when they will have that fixed.
