    Ampersand always getting encoded in razor

    I'm using Umbraco 7.2 razor, and I'm trying to use imagegen with an opengraph tag, but the querystring ampersand (eg. "&width=380") always gets converted into '&' which ends up breaking imagegen and loading the full size image. Am I missing something simple to fix this problem? This is my code:

    <meta property="og:image" content="http://@HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.Host/[email protected]&amp;width=380"/>

    Hi Jonok,

    Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't your code outputting "& amp;"? Can't you just use "&" instead?

    <meta property="og:image" content="http://@HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.Host/[email protected]&width=380 "/>

    I guess if that doesn't work, you could always use Html.Raw() in your content attribute:


    Hope that helps.

    Thanks, Dan.

    Wow - I've been working too long. You're right - I was already using &amp; in the razor. What an idiot :)
