I'm working on a project and have a search field that uses vue2-autocomplete with the ElementAPI plugin (following Andrew Welch's blog post). I'm having problems with search queries that have special characters. For example, if i search " d&b " it returns items that don't match but if I search " d%26b " it returns all the entries that I'm looking for that are supposed to match "d&b"

  • Probably just need to HTML encode the search input? – Brad Bell Aug 10 at 18:08
