If the thread title has [count] - the search box breaks


Well-known member
First of all, I use Widget Framework which puts sidebar on all the discussion pages. I'm not sure if the bug is with XF code or Widget Framework code; but here's what happens -

If I create thread with [count] in the title viz. "What's New? [count]", then the search box breaks - showing two overlapping buttons on the visitor panel.

Broken search box remains even if the thread title is edited and [count] is removed.

Is there any way to fix this? Not that I'm going to use [count] in title; but I'd definitely like to know what's happening here.

PS: Tested with Chrome on OSX.

It breaks on a particular forum page? A page with a widget perhaps? Obviously the search box didn't break here on xenforo.com when you posted this thread. Probably an addon. I suggest disabling addons to isolate.
