In the plugin I'm writing, I have an admin option that should be able to take a string enclosed in quotation marks. However, the quotation marks are being turned into backslashes. Obviously, it's some sort of escape character issue, but even if I insert an backslash before the quotation mark, it still gets removed.
I'm assuming this has something to do with how update_options works. I've briefly looked at how the function works, but I was hoping someone might of encountered this before and know how to circumvent it.
