I have an ACF Theme Options page to allow the user to insert HTML code for a donation button in TextArea field.
Each time I save the options page, slashes are being added. I understand it happening on the first save, but they keep adding up…

I am slash-stripping on the front end but it’s annoying. Any idea what’s going on, please?
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)
That fixed it. Thanks Elliot! 🙂
