Pre and Post-nav text bug?

Hello

Today, I wanted to update the Pre and Post-Nav texts of my website, but when pressing the save button, backslashes were added to my urls and font codes and made them broken. Pressing the save button again multiplies the amount of backslashes and so on. I am trying to remove the backslashes, but when I press the save button they're there again. Removing everything doesn't work either, because it gives me the default pre-nav text with unremovable backslashes.
I realized the backslashes were there where quotation marks (single and double) are and coding without these does actually work for urls and font sizes. However, I am not able to set my font face to arial black, since it doesn't recognize the font without quotation marks.

Is this a known bug? How can I get this solved? Thanks in advance.

stuff like this:

<a href=roosgroothuizen.nl/… size=2>A monkey</font>

is wrong...
Use some html validator to check what you're doing wrong...

Instead use css....

In your style.css (Admin->Assets) add

  1. .smallfont { font-size: 10px; }

and in your post-nav area

<a href="roosgroothuizen.nl/…; class="smallfont">A monkey</a>

bummer - you need to use quotation marks in the url address anyway...

Update:
I just found out that there's also backslashes when I type text in a page editor.. not code, but body text. It doesn't appear in the editor itself, but when published it's there...
It appears in front of apostrophes, so when I type it's, it changes to it/'s

help please?

It's really weird you never had this problem before - what was changed?

Last time I edited my website was about 2 months ago... Today I wanted to continue editing. The pre-nav and post-nav were alright, but I wanted to add a new sentence to it and at that moment all these backslashes appear out of nowhere. I never had the problem with the body text before either..

While we work out the fix for this, where is this data stored in the code? If I can just edit the html that would help for now. Or is this in the database?

(I know I have html validation issues, but I can't fix them until this bug is resolved).

This looks like the exact same problem as we have here, but I'm not quite sure how to resolve it with indexhibit files...

I can trick it for one update so the backslashes don't appear by using " in place of the quotation marks, but they're not rendering correctly on my site - it sort of nests the links or something.

  1. The above post updated the html tag 
  2. " with " but that's what I meant to say. Putting that instead of quotation marks works for one update, but it's still not working properly.

Argh!
I wish I could edit/delete posts.

This might be what I'm trying to say...

Nope. Forget it.
I would upgrade to Indexhibit 2 just to solve this, but I see there's no slideshow mode, so that's useless to me at the moment.

Sorry for the mess I've made here. Hopefully a mod can delete it and me.

I think I fixed it. Upgraded to 0.73 and it seems ok now.

That's great news! This may be a stupid question but how can I upgrade to 0.73? Can't seem to find the package/download anywhere?
