BuddyPress is eating my backslash !!!

    I noticed that when I tried to post something with a backslash in the group forum, BuddyPress will prevent it from being displayed. For example, if I type:
    `
    \begin{align}
    a_1& =b_1+c_1\\
    a_2& =b_2+c_2-d_2+e_2
    \end{align}
    `
    It will show up as:
    `
    begin{align}
    a_1& =b_1+c_1
    a_2& =b_2+c_2-d_2+e_2
    end{align}
    `

    Since I’m using Mathjax to display maths equation, the lack of backslash broke the whole rendering. Using the ASCII method [by using & # 9 2 ; as backslash (without the white space) ] works but it’s more likely to annoy the user and not practical.

    Oddly enough, I don’t have this problem in a normal post, comment or bbpress forum. Can someone explain why it’s happening??

    Added after a few second:
    I noticed that BuddyPress support forum is also eating my backslashes and I have to use the ASCII method to display the backslash……

    hello,

    put this into your child theme functions.php:

    `remove_filter( ‘bp_get_the_topic_post_content’, ‘stripslashes_deep’ );
    remove_filter( ‘bp_get_the_topic_latest_post_excerpt’, ‘stripslashes_deep’ );`

    First, if you use code on your topics, use the syntax highlighter evolved plugin.
    Than you can – If you don’t want to remove the filters – type 3 slashes instead of only one. Two will be stripped and one will appear. Depends on what you (and your users) exactly need to do. :D
