Magic Quotes? Strip Slashes? Why is this an issue?

  • hopetommola


    Fresh, current install of WP. Fresh, current install of BP.
    Both in the activity feed and in emails, quotes are escaped.

    I take exception to this … 😉

    Ha. Yes, this is an old and annoying issue in WordPress and WP plugins.

    That said, we have done extensive work in the past to ensure that quotes are stripped where necessary throughout various interfaces. If you can share more detail about exactly where you’re seeing the slashed content, we may be able to help figure out where things are going amiss. For example, you say that you’re seeing this in the activity feed. But in what context? Is it when you type something directly into the “What’s new” box, or when something is syndicated from elsewhere on the site? Are you seeing the slashes when you refresh the page, or only when the content is returned from the database?



    I posted a “public message” and it appeared in the activity feed as:
    Hey @jason what\’s up this weekend? This is a public message!

    I also tested an outgoing email from the admin and it appeared when I used a pair of double quotes



    I was just testing again and it’s fine … Wonder if I had a plugin conflict mucking something up. I guess it’s all good …

    Thanks for the update!



    Is there any way to narrow down what is conflicting to give this issue?

    I see this is 3 years old, but I have something causing the same problem.
