Special Character Codes in Post Titles showing in Post Object field

  • I’m using a Post Object field in the back end of a client website and just recently it has been showing any special characters in Post Titles, in our case dashes ( – ), as the character code &#8211 instead of the dash.

    We’ve been using these fields in this website for years without this happening, so this is a new issue, perhaps introduced in a recent either WP or ACF update. Is there a workaround or a patch coming?

    Thanks.

  • To add another detail, the existing value in the field, set prior to this issue arising, shows the dashes normally. But if I replace it with the same Post from the dropdown post list, it shows the #8211 code.
