    We have a user entering tags in the news module that contain '. When he enters the tags as a new tag it works fine. If he then wants to add that tag to a second news item, when clicking on the tag in the tag list we get this error:


    403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.

    You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

    This only occurs with the tags containing single quotes.

    I've found that the way around this is that instead of selecting the tag from the list, if the same tag name is entered via the add new tag dialog, it selects the existing tag rather than adding a new one of the same name. Using this method allows for the single quote containing tags to be selected.

    Hello Jon Ingersoll,

    This is a limitation of the categories and tags functionality in Sitefinity 3.x For a workaround on how to workaround this issue you can take a look at this forum thread.
