Somewhere in the WordPress code extra slashes are being added to my query terms.
I’ve turned GPC magic quotes off via a
php_value magic_quotes_gpc 0 directive in the
.htaccess file (we have far too much legacy code that nobody wants to touch to turn it off site-wide). And I know my code is doing one run of
addslashes(), but where are the other two sets of slashes coming from?
