Apostrophe-Slash Issue (6 posts)

    When entering an author name with an apostrophe like "O'Brien" the display shows "O/'Brien." Is there a way to strip these slashes out?

    Hi Mkassowitz,

    I'll look into this for the next release.

    Cheers

    I'm having the same issue. I work with people that need links included in their author bios and the plugin is adding the escape slashes, but not stripping them back out when displayed.

    I'll look into the code later today myself to see if I can resolve this.

    Not a perfect fix, but adding stripslashes at line 108 in display_about_author.php fixed it for me.

    return stripslashes(caa_get_author_bio_html($author));

    Jerry,

    What version of the plugin are you looking at? Closest match the filename I see is display-about-author-block.php, but there's no corresponding line 108...
