#1648 new bug

Slashes swallowed when updating profile data

Reported by: planetcruiser Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unassigned
Component: BW Profile Keywords: easy



  • All textareas (i.e. "Profile Summary" or "I Live With") don't handle backslashes in front of single quotes well:
    • \' becomes ' after saving
    • \\\\\\\' also becomes ' after saving


  • Save information as typed in by the user, so always keep the backslashes


  • Other text fields (not textarea) save information as expected, compare data handling and display there

Related ticket:

  • #1279 (see fixes in commits)


  • Not urgent, because it's very unlikely that someone needs \' in their profile ;)

Some fields (like the verification comment) do it the other way round: They add a \ in front of a '.
