Problem with breadcrumbs and & symbol

Jul 9, 2009 at 3:42 PM

I've set up Faceted Search 3.0 on my SharePoint farm. The facets work great. Unfortunately, when I click a faceted value that contains an ampersand, the breadcrumb web part throws the red exclamation point at me.

Has anyone else experienced this? I searched around but couldn't find anything about ampersands in the breadcrumbs.

That should have been fixed. What was the exact value in your case?

Here's the exact query string: (server name changed to protect the innocent.)


The managed property is "Department". The text to search on is "Operations - Secretarial & Document Services".

It shows up fine in the facet web part. As soon as I try to narrow it down with that, it throws the red exclamation point. I can also paste that URL into the address bar for the same effect.

Thank you for any assistance!

I reproed the bug. It is fixed in 3.0.070709.0 build.
