|Target Version||Fixed in Version||2.11.7|
|Summary||0016671: Square brackets get removed in code - conditional comments are broken.|
|Description||If you are using conditional comments - which is a huge deal to make stuff working in Outlook and other old IE browser, content in square brackets will get removed. The system thinks it's a placeholder and gets rid of it.|
|Steps To Reproduce||Put in some conditional comments or anything in square brackets in your email that is not a placeholder. You'll see that it is GONE from the message when sent.|
|Additional Information||We have to come with a way to let people put square brackets in the email when they need to. A good idea would be make people double them up.|
could be entered as
And they system would know to render it as
Right now i'm removing 564 and 565 of sendemaillib.php as such
## remove any existing placeholders
#$htmlmessage = eregi_replace("\[[A-Z\. ]+\]","",$htmlmessage);
#$textmessage = eregi_replace("\[[A-Z\. ]+\]","",$textmessage);
I think the regex could be changed to remove all placeholders and just remove the extra [ and ] from doubled brackets.
Anyone have a better idea?

||if we agree double square is the way to go, or whatever we agree on i'd be glad to code the fix myself. Let me know.|
The problem is that, after processing placeholders, the code removes anything remaining between square brackets. I guess it thinks that they are unrecognised placeholders.
The simplest change is just not to remove those. This is actually more useful as if a placeholder has been mis-spelt then it remains in the message body.
||Then the 2 lines that i removed should be removed from the code. I agree it could be more useful to notice when you misspelled a placeholder.|
||Yes, I agree, let's simply not do a "clean up". I'll do this in 2.11|
