Repeating Apostrophe in FCKEditor

Repeating Apostrophe in FCKEditor

I am having an issue where anytime I type an apostrophe in the editor and save... then go back and edit the text content ... the apostrophe doubles, triples... etc...

His parent's car was awesome.
Becomes:
His parent'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s car was awesome.

Please tell me how to correct this issue ... or how to change out the editor for some other that does not do this.

I am using Power CMS Version 2 and see the FCKEditor files located inside it... so I assume that this can be corrected
or maybe swapped out for a better / functioning editor???

Thanks!

This is not an issue that I"m able to reproduce with the sample you posted. It does not seem to be adding in the extra apostrophes for me. Have you made any edits to any of the HTML Editor instances on any of these pages in the admin area?

When you insert new content that has the apostrophe in it do you see it doubled up in the preview of the content immediately after inserting it? If you could post back and include copies of your contents update and contents insert pages I can look to see if I can spot any issue with the code on this page that would cause this.

Is it possible to give you access...

Can I send you my URL and Admin Access so that you can take a look at it? Just tell me where you would like me to email this info if so.

Basically... I have a page here for example:
index.php - on that page it has the following text:
==========================================================

FINANCING

To help our customers qualify and close on the home of their dreams, we offer mortgage service through Piedmont Funding Group .

==========================================================

If I change that via the editor and add and apostrophe on the word customers and make that customer's .... then it will place two of there there when I save it... like: customer''s.

And then if I click to edit it again and resave (whether I change anything or not) it doubles that like: customer''''s and will do that over and over until I have customer''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s and worse.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is the code before doing what I mention above:

<!-- Sub-content Area on Homepage --> <div style="width: 580px;"><!-- Content Block A --><!-- Content Block B --> <!-- Content Block C --> <table cellspacing="7" cellpadding="0" border="0" style="width: 580px; height: 360px;"> <tbody><tr> <td valign="top" bgcolor="#333333" style="padding: 10px;"><p style="margin: 5px;" class="style4"><span style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">3.99% 30 YEAR FIXED!</span></p><p class="style5"><span style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">The Centro Development Corporation Communities are offering a promotion of 3.99% 30 Year Fixed Rate until December 31th!</span></p><p class="style5"><a style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);" href="ourcommunities.php"><span style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">Browse our communities</span></a><span style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"> to find your new home and take advantage of this great rate while it lasts.</span></p></td> <td width="229" valign="top" style="padding: 10px;" rowspan="2"><p style="margin: 5px;">FINANCING</p> <p style="margin: 5px;" class="style1"><span class="style3">To help our customers qualify and close on the home of their dreams, we offer mortgage service through Piedmont Funding Group .</span><br> <br> Mortgage financing of newly built homes requires a unique relationship between you, the builder, and the lender. <br> <a href="http://creekside/finance.html">MORE ABOUT FINANCING</a></p></td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top" style="padding: 10px;" class="style1"><strong>WHY DELAY... TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR LATEST PROMOTION TODAY!</strong></td></tr></tbody></table></div> <div width:="" style="height: 8px;"><spacer></spacer></div> <!-- Content Area Ends --> <div style="height: 4px; width: 580px;"><spacer></spacer></div>
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And here is the code after adding the apostrophe once and then saving it (doubles it):

<!-- Sub-content Area on Homepage --> <div style="width: 580px;"><!-- Content Block A --><!-- Content Block B --> <!-- Content Block C --> <table cellspacing="7" cellpadding="0" border="0" style="width: 580px; height: 360px;"> <tbody><tr> <td valign="top" bgcolor="#333333" style="padding: 10px;"><p style="margin: 5px;" class="style4"><span style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">3.99% 30 YEAR FIXED!</span></p><p class="style5"><span style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">The Centro Development Corporation Communities are offering a promotion of 3.99% 30 Year Fixed Rate until December 31th!</span></p><p class="style5"><a style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);" href="ourcommunities.php"><span style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">Browse our communities</span></a><span style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"> to find your new home and take advantage of this great rate while it lasts.</span></p></td> <td width="229" valign="top" style="padding: 10px;" rowspan="2"><p style="margin: 5px;">FINANCING</p> <p style="margin: 5px;" class="style1"><span class="style3">To help our customer''s qualify and close on the home of their dreams, we offer mortgage service through Piedmont Funding Group .</span><br> <br> Mortgage financing of newly built homes requires a unique relationship between you, the builder, and the lender. <br> <a href="http://creekside/finance.html">MORE ABOUT FINANCING</a></p></td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top" style="padding: 10px;" class="style1"><strong>WHY DELAY... TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR LATEST PROMOTION TODAY!</strong></td></tr></tbody></table></div> <div width:="" style="height: 8px;"><spacer></spacer></div> <!-- Content Area Ends --> <div style="height: 4px; width: 580px;"><spacer></spacer></div>
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And here is the code after clicking to edit again / changing nothing and saving again (4 apostrophes now):

<!-- Sub-content Area on Homepage --> <div style="width: 580px;"><!-- Content Block A --><!-- Content Block B --> <!-- Content Block C --> <table cellspacing="7" cellpadding="0" border="0" style="width: 580px; height: 360px;"> <tbody><tr> <td valign="top" bgcolor="#333333" style="padding: 10px;"><p style="margin: 5px;" class="style4"><span style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">3.99% 30 YEAR FIXED!</span></p><p class="style5"><span style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">The Centro Development Corporation Communities are offering a promotion of 3.99% 30 Year Fixed Rate until December 31th!</span></p><p class="style5"><a style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);" href="ourcommunities.php"><span style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">Browse our communities</span></a><span style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"> to find your new home and take advantage of this great rate while it lasts.</span></p></td> <td width="229" valign="top" style="padding: 10px;" rowspan="2"><p style="margin: 5px;">FINANCING</p> <p style="margin: 5px;" class="style1"><span class="style3">To help our customer''''s qualify and close on the home of their dreams, we offer mortgage service through Piedmont Funding Group .</span><br> <br> Mortgage financing of newly built homes requires a unique relationship between you, the builder, and the lender. <br> <a href="http://creekside/finance.html">MORE ABOUT FINANCING</a></p></td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top" style="padding: 10px;" class="style1"><strong>WHY DELAY...

Let me know if I can give you access and let you see that happen for yourself.

I guess the ' character has to be escaped somehow...

I guess I need to be able to escape that ' character somehow... like:

\' - when it is saved.

Problem resolved...

I found the problem to be that magic_quotes_gpc was sent to "On" in my servers php.ini file.... changed that to "Off" and don't have the issue any further.

Thanks anyway.

Good catch with the ini setting for this. Does your host have this turned on by default for you? It is not normal to see this setting turned on unless it is explicitly set that way for some reason. Regardless, I'm glad that it is working for you.
