Description: When you use quotes in a list (I've only tested with unordered lists) they appear with a backslash on the page.


* "quoted string"

View: \"quoted string\"

Can you duplicate this problem on pmwiki.org? If not, then I suspect the problem is in a local customization or Cookbook recipe that may be loaded on the site. Try disabling various recipes that may be installed and see if the problem still remains.

Also, it would be very helpful to provide a url to a page demonstrating the problem.


I found this problem too, right after activating the Expanding Menu recipe. Looks like emenu.php should be modified.

Have you verified the PHP configuration of your server?. I had the problem because the magic_quotes_gpc variable was off. Editing the local .htaccess and adding the line:

php_value magic_quotes_gpc on

was enough for me.
