Annoying HTML codes in e-mail for Review Request

We use e-mails to contact reviewers. At the end of the e-mail we send, the instructions for the reviewer are automaticaly copied. But the text appears with a lot of annoying HTML codes that make it difficult for the reviewer to read the text. For instante, in French, this is the end of the text:
…sans une nouvelle intervention du r&eacute;viseur. Si &agrave; la suite des modifications de l'auteur, l'article doit &ecirc;tre soumis &agrave; une nouvelle r&eacute;vision, il faut choisir l'option &laquo;&nbsp;Soumettre &agrave; nouveau &agrave; r&eacute;vision&nbsp;&raquo;.</p><p>&nbsp;</p>
How can this be avoided

Hi @PereC,

Which of our applications are you using, and what version?

Dear Alec Smecher,

Thanks for your interest to solve the problem. I am using Open Journal
Systems. I think our version is still 2.2.4. Here you can see an example
of this problem. This is a message sent by the editor of the journal to
an expert asking to review an article:

As you see, the codes appear at the end of the message, in the text
which appears as a result of the link {reviewGuidelines}

And here you have the text as appears in Review Guideliness, without any
code (under Journal Management > Journal Setup > Step 2. Journal Policies:

The only way I could find to solve this is to replace the text with
codes in each e-mail with the text I keep without codes. But this is
laborious and what is more important in some cases I forget to do it and
the recipient of the message can hardly understant the text.

Best wishes,

Pere Casanellas

Hi @PereC,

That’s a very old installation of OJS, and I suspect the issue you’re encountering has already been solved in newer releases. I’d suggest upgrading, and if you’re still having problems, follow up here.
