Apostrophe s (‘s) becomes \’ in subscription widget

  • Author

    Hello all,

    My blog is at http://alanoldstudent.wordpress.com/. The name, as you can see, is “Alan Oldstudent’s Musings.”

    I just now added the subscribe widget. In the optional text portion of this widget, when I write “Alan Oldstudent’s” what shows up is “Alan OldStudent\’s.”

    There has to be some way of entering that apostrophe so it shows up without the backslash.

    Please advise


    Alan OldStudent

    The blog I need help with is alanoldstudent.wordpress.com.


    Contact staff so that they can fix that. They will have to fix that.



    Thanks SacredPath,

    Once again, you’re to the rescue!

    I’ll mark this topic resolved as soon as I hear from them.

    You’re welcome.


    Here’s an update:

    I haven’t heard back from support yet. I expect they’re a bit swamped right now, as they took a few days off to have their conference.

    Meanwhile, I have other questions about this widget, but I’ll post them in a separate thread to keep from muddying the waters around here too much.

    Here’s another update,

    Several hours ago, wordpress.com sent me an email telling me that they had fixed the problem, and indeed they had.

    Thanks to TheSacredPath and wordpress.com support!

    I’m marking this issue RESOLVED
