This mainly happens with custom fields and it also fully corrupts the export file if there is a numeric custom field.

This is caused by string_custom_field_value() calling string_display_links() which seems odd, since this is a display operation rather than data retrieval operation.

The fix for this should include the following:

  • Completely remove this call or at least make it optional.
  • When exporting a field we should only export it as numeric if it is of type numeric and the value is numeric (defense in depth).

Check CSV as well, since it may be affected by this bug.

Fix CSV and Excel export when markdown is enabled

The output for CSV and Excel included paragraph html tags which polluted
the output and corrupted Excel output when there are numeric custom fields.

This was caused by calling html processing when getting the value of custom fields.

The fix is to have the retrieval of custom field values not process it for any output
and have the calling code do the appropriate processing. The code also now does
processing based on the custom field type rather than treating types all as string.
