Not Solved Backslash Problem
#1
Not Solved
I just launched a new forum and am getting backslashes every time anyone uses an apostrophe with a word. For example: "I can\'t remember when I was here." I'll get a backslash on the word "can't" every time.

How can this be fixed? Thanks --RichBlush

Is there a word filter in place causing it?

Where would I look for this?

No Word Filters are in place.

Looks like an escaping issue to me.

Any ideas on how to fix it?

Does anyone know how to fix this?

That shouldn't be happening. Contact your web host and ask them because it doesn't happen on any other forum.
No longer involved in the MyBB project.

Might this possibly be an issue with magicquotes or something? Just thinking out loud

Yes, Euan T is right, it's related to "magicquotes".

You will need to speak to your host to change the settings, something I had to do myself and it worked when they did whatever they did.
