Help, Zen Cart 1.3.9 G Broke My Defined Pages!

So you upgraded to 1.3.9 G and everything seemed ok until you updated your main page, or other defined pages content…. Not to worry, the Zen Cart team has a fix for this. I will explain this for you in detail, so you can correctly whitelist and fix these and other functions that rely on the HTML parsing in your Zen Cart. Note that all of your admin previews are also not parsing the HTML and you see them as code in preview… This is not a mistake and protects you against the possible execution of scripts in the defined area and XSS injection. I imagine that eventually the “preview” button will simply be removed and we will have just “save” like other areas.
