For some reason in the subjects (Ititles) of my blogs, all the apostrophes and quotation marks are turning into magic quotes. I have tried all different ways of copying/pasting normal quotes into the field, but after I publish they turn into magic quotes. In fact, the original quotes I paste in are not even magic quotes, but somehow they turn into it... any idea what I'm doing wrong?
And, btw, who in the world invested magic quotes and why did they do it? I have Googled this issue and not many poeple have sound advice or solutions on how to fix it in WP, so I hope someone here has an answer. (I suspect the magic quotes are a MSFT invention, no?)
