[Solved] [2.1a] Backslash added? if quotation marks
Hi, I 've rencently tried the latest v2.1a (24), great and more but...
when I write a new discussion, comment, activity's state, message alert then a backslash is added if I use these " and ' quotation marks
do you know why? nobody seems encounter this problem, so may be I need to change something
many thanks in advance

We've had one other report for this, but it wasn't as succinct as yours. I'm going to look into it.
You've got magic quotes turned on. I've added a fix for this but you can also fix it by adding the following to your php.ini:
yes my magic_quotes_gpc parameter is on, you're right then I will try to change it to my php.ini and I will give to you my feedback
thank you for this quick reply...
I'm defintely interested in knowing how this works out. I'm having a related issue, except for me, it's only for posts, and only for text enclosed in [code] tags or within a three-backtick code block, and it's only for double-quotes.
(This is quite often a problem, as you can imagine, because the kinds of things you usually enclose in code blocks quite often have double-quotes! )
@Todd even if magic_quotes_gpc parameter is off, backslah still added w/ v2.1a25
but may be, I've missing something only tested locally on a wamp server (not online, runnig on linux)
Please, could you tell us where I can download your fix, is it available from Github ?
@Todd Sorry in fact it seems solved now... if magic_quotes_gpc are disabled
@Todd, is it publicly available at this time?
I 've looking for it at Github but nothing found about it I can't change my php.ini file with my online web hosting
many thanks in advance
May be here
I don't understand any of the following php code but I will try to copy & paste it
PS: not "master" but "develop" branch
I'm having this problem now too. Magic quotes are off via htaccess, but have suddenly stopped working. My web host says the htaccess override and the above workaround should be more than enough to prevent it, and say it is something to do with the script im using. They won't alter it in php.
php_value magic_quotes 0
php_flag magic_quotes off
php_value magic_quotes_gpc 0
php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off
in .htaccess, both in the site's root directory (which is Wordpress) and vanilla's htaccess (in subdirectory)
it seems solved with v2.1a33 in my case, so you could try to upgrade if you 're using a previous version but I can't tell to you more about it, sorry
