TOS adds backslash to precede an apostrophe (single quote) (2 posts)

    wp members v 2.8.1.

    When adding HTML to the TOS an apostrophe (single quote) contained in a <p> tag ends up being preceded by a backslash in the final source of the page.

    For example this:

    becomes this:


    Additionally if I paste this into the TOS dialog box:


    And click save, then view the TOS page the source displays as expected:


    However if I then return to the dialog edit box the code is displayed like this:


    And if I click save and visit the TOS page the source now shows this:


    Which doesn't look good on the rendered page:


    Is this a bug in the plugin ?

    Oh nevermind, I didn't realise I had to encode the apostrophe too.


    But it is easy to forget that when typing an update to the TOS it needs to be copy / pasted from HTML source rather than directly edited, as the encoding gets lost otherwise.
