I'm having a problem with backslashes getting added in front of apostrophes/single quotes in banner_text and banner_title. I did a test where I added a \' in a title string and \\\' was added to the database record (two backslashes added). Entries with just one single quote get written to the database as \'
I found the record in wp_options and the backslashes are in the record. It seems like this is happening on input. Any ideas? Could there be some php setting on my server that is affecting this?
