[resolved] [BUG] Dollar signs and numerals are being erased at output (2 posts)

    This issue has been noted many months ago and has still persisted into the latest version:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-live-blogging-numbers-before-comma-disappearing

    The problem is in this code block:

    $style = preg_replace(
            '/\$CONTENT/',
           apply_filters('the_content', $entry->post_content),
            $style);
        // Add content back in hooks

    When the second argument of that function call contains dollar-currency amounts, PHP will treat them as backreferences. The backreferences need to be escaped in order for the output to properly display.
