HTML code converting into HTML entities code #731

In RSS tab I added HTML (Anchor text code) it's converted like this:

yoast wordpress seo rss techlila wordpress

Also unable to click on any options from Left Panel after opening "RSS' settings option. Like I unable to click on "Plugins" or "Appearance"

Checked an output, seems it's as expected.

I just saw comment on your post, someone else facing same issue: Other menu options become unclickable when we are in the SEO plugin options.

Console showing this: event.returnValue is deprecated. Please use the standard event.preventDefault() instead.

@namaserajesh Thank you for reporting the RSS html issue. The output may have looked like you expected if the RSS feed hadn't regenerated yet, but it will go wrong once it does if you have saved the options more than once (only once will not give issues except for looking strange on the options page).

I've submitted pull request #748 to fix this. You will need to re-edit/correct the RSS fields & re-save them after the update has gone through to get things right again if you did save more than once.

The menu clickability should be fixed by pull request #745.

The console error is unrelated.
