I upgraded to the latest version of AFC Pro today 188.8.131.52 After this any content fields like wysiwyg or text fields in an option page started adding back slashes in front of any quotes. It does not seem to happen on afc content fields located on regular pages or posts, only option pages so far. So a statement like :
<div class=”test”> becomes <div class=\”test\”>
and if you keep saving it it keeps adding more back slashes.
I rolled back to version 5.7.9 and the problem goes away, i then re updated and the problem is back so its defiantly this new version causing it.
It does not happen on standard wordpress content fields only afc content fields on option pages but maybe its more wide spread this is just some immediate testing.
Can you please let us know the depth of this so we can now the full scope of pages that may need to be fixed?
My apologies for the issues in version 5.7.11.
I am confident we have found and fixed the issue.
Can you please re-download the ACF PRO plugin files and test the issue?
An easy way to re-download is to edit the main acf.php plugin file and change the version number ‘5.7.11’ down to ‘5.7.10’
– please note the version number appears twice in this file and both will need to be changed
– after this change is made, please update the plugin as per normal and it will update to 5.7.11 (including the new fix)
