Double Apostrophes Problem

  • Why am I getting two apostrophes when I’ve only type in one? This has occurred in multiple wordpress installs including a brand new with no active plugins. For example if I want type in “February’s” it is published as “February”s”. This occurs in the title and body of the post. The crazy thing is, if I update the post it will add another apostrophe each time. If I updated the post 5 times I would have this “February”””’s”.

    Why is this happening and what can I do?

  • I’m having the same issue.

    I’ve disabled magic quotes by creating a php.ini (or php5.ini) file containing:
    ; Magic quotes for incoming GET/POST/Cookie data.
    magic_quotes_gpc = Off

    I put the file in my wordpress root as well as wp-admin folder. No luck even though my phpinfo() shows that magic_quotes are off.

    Also tried to remove the wptexturize filter for comments and content with no luck.
