Had this issue a few version back and it got patched. Now broke again:
Just created a ticket on Trac after testing it and replicating on a new install.
The original ticket and patch was here:
Same kind of issue with caption and shortcode being fed into the activity stream excerpt.
To replicate is simple:
-Open a new post
-Place a picture with a caption BUT NO LINK into the post
-You will see the caption and the closing caption shortcode in the stream item
Tested on 2 installs and a brand new install of 1.6.1 with no plugins at all running.
Could someone try to verify this and I would be SO grateful for a patch to sort this as I want to launch a new site this weekend!
thanks in advance!, really appreciate it!
