The straight double quote character causes errors in text fields

Postby Mistywing » Sat Jun 17, 2017 4:24 am

This: " (not “ or ”)
Wiki link: double typewriter quotation marks.
U+0022 unicode character code.

Causes the rest of the field to be blanked out. If the text in that field is not re-entered it will save the new text up until the quotation character.
Example here.

Yeah, this bug has been known for years, it's due to some poor SQL sanitizing decisions. Thankfully, it appears to be fixed in the upcoming new site.

Figured it was something like that, didn't search to check if it'd already been reported before though. Sorry about that.
