config.active_support.escape_html_entities_in_json not registering within application.rb

Reported by hectcastro (at gmail) | October 25th, 2010 @ 10:43 PM

When config.active_support.escape_html_entities_in_json = true is added to application.rb, HTML entities within JSON are not escaped. When ActiveSupport.escape_html_entities_in_json = true is added to an initializer, HTML entities within JSON are escaped.

This conflicts with the Configuring Active Support section of the configuration Ruby on Rails Guide.

    This issue has been automatically marked as stale because it has not been commented on for at least three months.

    The resources of the Rails core team are limited, and so we are asking for your help. If you can still reproduce this error on the 3-0-stable branch or on master, please reply with all of the information you have about it and add "[state:open]" to your comment. This will reopen the ticket for review. Likewise, if you feel that this is a very important feature for Rails to include, please reply with your explanation so we can consider it.

    Thank you for all your contributions, and we hope you will understand this step to focus our efforts where they are most helpful.
