I need to use a superscript registered symbol ( ® ) in a category title.

There is no unicode character for a superscripted ® and I can't figure out a way to make the category title allow HTML.

Has anyone got a work around for this?

  • Have you considered a client side javascript solution to find and replace ® with <sup>®</sup>? – mjr Apr 8 '16 at 16:53
  • Yes I've just implemented one but it's really not an ideal solution. – foamcow Apr 8 '16 at 17:07

    How about not using the category title? Create a custom category field and use that to display as the title instead? Or does that have the same restriction? – Peter Lewis Apr 8 '16 at 21:34
  • Hmm. I like that idea. Not sure if it would have the same restriction. From a client simplicity point of view it might not be ideal but I like your thinking! – foamcow Apr 9 '16 at 21:09

Have you check CE String? It allows you to manipulate strings (text) with very simple syntax. In the User guide take a look at the Custom Methods.
