Last names with apostrophes not working (5 posts)

    Hi there,

    First of all - super plugin!

    I think I've uncovered a pretty critical bug.

    I have some guests who have names with apostrophes

    e.g. Bill O'Neill

    Upon attempting to login on the frontend, the user sees:

    We were unable to find anyone with a name of Bill o\'neill

    So it would appear that character escaping is preventing Bill from logging in.

    I checked wp_attendees and I can see the record is stored as "Bill O'Neill"

    Any ideas as to what code needs to be changed for this to work correctly? I have about 100 guests all due to get invites in the next 36 hours and about 30 of them have O'Neill surnames!!

    actually just solved it by going into the DB and changing any O'Neill records to O\'Neill.

    when I enter records via the plugin UI they get stored correctly in the DB asO\'Neill but it looks like there is a bug with the importer as it just takes the contents of the column - when it should escape these apostrophes :)

    also I should note that for additional attendee's their names are not encoded correctly when they are being displayed in the UI - they are showing the \ char when it should be removed for display purposed.

    Running into the same thing. So you found the bug is in the importer, do we know how to correct that? and lastly do we know how to correct the UI?

    since the recent plugin updates, I just update the guest name in the plugin UI and works fine. Just seems to be when guests are imported from what I can tell.
