Special characters output in profile fields

    I’m having a problem with the output of special characters in the Buddypress profile fields.
    Like for example: a company name that uses apostrof ‘Name’ outputs this in the profile field as: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h14ir9rjtnuyc8l/characters.jpg?dl=0

    Is there anything that could be done to let the fields accept special characters?

    Hi @Sander – Thanks for reporting this. It looks like a legitimate bug. I’ve opened a ticket to track it: https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/7631

    While we try to figure out a way to make this work better, you can work around the issue by disabling autolink for the field in question. Dashboard > Users > Profile Fields > Edit, and look for the Autolink metabox at the right.
