/r/n characters in textarea fields
#12
I wanted to revive this topic to ask for some help.

I'm using 2.26 formtools with an external form. I'm able to display the form submission contents to the user on my "thanks" page but any ', ", or carriage return entered in a textarea field in the form gets displayed in the thanks page with escape slashes> For example, submitting this text into a textarea comments field in the form:

You "DON'T" need to include
contact information in your
ad copy.

Results in this text being displayed on the thanks page:

You \"DON\'T\" need to include\r\ncontact information in your\r\nad copy.

making the submitter think there's something wrong with their form submission. How do I suppress this behavior?
