WP 2.0.3 comment problem (5 posts)

    Going against my usual restraint of waiting at least a week before I jump on an upgrade, I upgraded my blog to WP 2.0.3 yesterday, and everything seemed fine until I went to edit a comment I had made.

    For some reason, if I edit a comment with a contraction or a set of quotes, it will add a hash (\).

    Here is an example of the initial comment:

    test post:

    you’re insane. ”here we are”. Aren’t we foolish.

    Now when I go into edit the comment by adding a line, it appears like this:

    test post:

    you\’re insane. \”here we are\”. Aren\’t we foolish.

    And now I add this line through the edit…

    I cannot get rid of the hash marks.

    I posted a test post here so you can see what is going on.

    Any help on this will be appreciated

    Indeed, Nuclear Moose, thanks for sharing ... can anyone on the dev team speak to this? Was the security flaw so bad that 2.0.3 had to be rushed out the door? I upgraded two 2.0.2 installs and have a dozen more to do, guess I should press on, rather than waiting for ... thoughts anyone?

    2.0.4 is on the tracks.

    It is not only a small comment bug. They made a mistake. It happens. The dev leveled the security of the admin panel (they call it "nonce"). And they forgot to upgrade just a few of the functions.
    2.0.3 is worth upgrading because of that. But, you can wait the end of June so everything will be smoothed.

    2.0.4 >, what was I typing, duh.

    Thanks for the roadmap pointer. Figured the dev team would be on this.

    Peace, kj
