Unrecognized character in workflow condition


I have been creating a condition for a workflow that checks to see if a field has an exact value. The value I am looking for contains a + symbol. Whenever I save the workflow it eliminates the + symbol. I have tried different character sets such as ISO-8859-1, ISO-8859-9 and UTF-8 but it was still unrecognized. Additionally I have tried using PHP escape sequences such as + , '+ , etc but those were unsuccessful as well.

Is there a way to do this?

I noticed that the + symbol is a reserved character within PHP but have been unable to figure out how to use it in a workflow condition.

Any help would be appreciated.


If you want a quick and dirty solution, try setting that value in the aow_conditions table directly from mysql or phpMyAdmin…
