Character replacements in admin system (3 posts)

    Certain areas of the admin system seem to replace certain characters with others.

    i.e. / is placed in front of '

    This then appears on the front end.

    i.e. it's becomes it/'s

    This doesn't affect posting or editing posting but does affect Authors descriptions and editing comments.

    NB: comments are fine if entered through the front end. Only when edited in the admin system does this additional character placement occur.

    Help gratefully received.

    Sounds like you're running 2.0.3? There's a tuneup plugin that will fix a few minor bugs until the next release comes out.

    Thank you, that has fixed the issue with the /

    The issue left now is on the author page. The about user box will not accept < > characters.

    Well more to the point it does accept them and prints them as is rather than allowing th input of HTML tags.

    ie to place a link in the users profile.

    Help to fix this would also be appreciated.
