Support » Fixing WordPress » WP 2.0.3 comment problem

  • DavidA


    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
