Interesting problem with data unserialization in symfony. So if you have stored serialized value in database and want to unserialize it (lets say it’s $obj->getText() value), you need to make sure you use special chars decode like here:
$value = htmlspecialchars_decode($obj->getText()); $data = unserialize($value);
Without actual htmlspecialchars_decode command PHP compiler will report about offset error.

Are you doing this in a template?
If so, it’s not really a good idea.
Ah yes good comment, it affect only code which added to template. But I believe there are exception cases when this may need to be added in template so good to know about such issue 🙂
