$$ selector problem

Reported by Radovan Kepák | July 28th, 2009 @ 01:09 PM | in 1.3.0 rc2 (closed)

I have website, created a plugin for mail rewrite, so the spambots don't have chance to get them. I use prototype first, then I decide to switch to mootools, but I found a problem, on prototype I have selector $$('a[href^="#mailer"]').each(function(item){
//do stuff }); in prototype it works OK, but no element found in mootools :( i try a[href^=#mailer] and same problem, but if I remove #, selector work ok

My mail protector is in attach

    The problem lies with When the selector 'a[href^="#mailer"]' gets processed by that regular expression in the method, it captures 'mailer' as an id. Because of this, when calls Selectors.Utils.getByTagAndID, it looks for a tags where id is mailer and returns nothing.

    Thanks for the bug report and finding the root cause. This is already fixed in MooTools 2.0. Until that comes out, I suggest finding a workaround, such as $$('a[href*=mailer]').

    Yes this should work fine on 1.3, there are specs for this on Slick. Fixed.
