wp_kses_stripslashes() WP 1.0.0

Strips slashes from in front of quotes.

This function changes the character sequence \" to just ". It leaves all other slashes alone. It's really weird, but the quoting from preg_replace(//e) seems to require this.

No Hooks.

Return

String. Fixed string with quoted slashes

Usage

wp_kses_stripslashes( $string );
$string(string) (required)
String to strip slashes
