Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Bug: Escape Characters Inserted

Bug Bug: Escape Characters Inserted

When saving any changes (in fact any time the 'Save' button is clicked) escape characters are inserted into the post info configuration boxes. This results in the post info being rendered unusable.

I am on WP 2.7. I have reverted to Atahualpa 2 for the time being. If you need to look at this, let me know and I will furnish you temporary admin access via e-mail.

It does it with the default entries. In fact, each time I saved it added another set of escape (\) characters. By the time I noticed it the first time, there were probably 20 or 30 escape characters added. I recopied the default values into the post info config boxes, but when I saved the escape characters started appearing again. I attached a screen print to show you what it looks like.

Yup, I'm experiencing the same problem. In fact the first time I installed the theme, I ended up seeing the header, left sidebar and the first post appear with everything blank subsequently. The footer for the first post would not render and the right sidebar and page footers would be blank.

After much head banging I saw tons of escape characters in the "Post/Page Info Items" -> "FOOTER" input boxes. Copy / pasting the default content shown into the input boxes did not help because a minimum of one escape character would be added. Same issue with IE 7 and FF 3.0.4.

Finally, clearing everything out of those input boxes got the home page to render completely. I'm using WP 2.7 and have the blog hosted on laughing squid.
