    i've tried pasting a paragraph of text into a new post and it only saves a sentence or two. this is not an odd occurance, it just won't let me paste and save an entire block of text. can anybody help me here? has this been seen before?

    Have you tried deactivating all of your plugins and switching to the default theme?

    yup. i've narrowed it down to where it stops the paste, at certain types of punctuation: apostrophes, commas.

    Can you post a link to the source? Is it UTF-8?

    how do i check if it's UTF-8?

    anyways, here's one of the posts from the vBulletin site that i wanted to copy over to a blog post in the WP site. like i said, the paste stops after quotation marks, apostrophes,etc. in the example below(in the link), i would'nt get past the word entitled.
