EP issues with quotes in description


Recommended Posts

If you are having problems uploading descriptions with quotes using easy populate the situation can be resolved by making sure that your easypopulate.php file has this code:

// **** Quote -> Escape character conversion ****
// If you have extensive html in your descriptions and it's getting mangled on upload, turn this off
// set to 1 = replace quotes with escape characters
// set to 0 = no quote replacement
global $replace_quotes;
$replace_quotes = false;


The setting is set to true by default.


Double quotes do not work so do not use them in your descriptions. You can only use single quotes that are escaped: \' That was what worked for me.


I've written this because I have seen other posts with the same problem and no answer for them.
