Forward slashes in front of apostrophes

  • I have a unique problem it seems. I have bbpress 0.75 installed and WP 2.0.5 installed and playing together nicely… except that I get a forward slash in front of apostrophes and quotation marks. I have found that if I take out the require_once( ‘/…/wp-config.php’); and define(‘WP_BB’, ‘true’); from the bbpress config.php the problem vanishes. I have been searching all over the forums, but haven’t found anything that seems to match.

    My forums are at:

    bbPress config.php:


    //This will get all the functions from WordPress into bbPress


    require_once( ‘/home/users/web/b1442/pow.drinknbud/htdocs/wordpress/wp-config.php’);

    //Set this value in the config file so the functions defined in WordPress are not redefined

    define(‘WP_BB’, ‘true’);

    // ** MySQL settings ** //

    define(‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘****’); // The name of the database

    define(‘BBDB_USER’, ‘*****’); // Your MySQL username

    define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘*****’); // …and password

    define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘*****’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value

    // ** WordPress MySQL settings ** //

    define(‘USER_BBDB_NAME’, ‘*****’);

    define(‘USER_BBDB_USER’, ‘*****’);

    define(‘USER_BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘****’);

    define(‘USER_BBDB_HOST’, ‘*****’);

    // Change the prefix if you want to have multiple forums in a single database.

    $bb_table_prefix = ‘***’; // Only letters, numbers and underscores please!

    // If your bbPress URL is , the examples would be correct.

    // Adjust the domain and path to suit your actual URL.

    // Just the domain name; no directories or path. There should be no trailing slash here.

    $bb->domain = ‘;; // Example: ‘;

    // There should be both a leading and trailing slash here. ‘/’ is fine if the site is in root.

    $bb->path = ‘/wordpress/forums/’; // Example: ‘/forums/’

    // What are you going to call me?

    $bb->name = ‘DFP Forums’;

    // This must be set before running the install script.

    $bb->admin_email = ‘****’;

    // Set to true if you want pretty permalinks.

    $bb->mod_rewrite = false;

    // The number of topics that show on each page.

    $bb->page_topics = 30;

    // A user can edit a post for this many minutes after submitting.

    $bb->edit_lock = 60;

    // Your timezone offset. Example: -7 for Pacific Daylight Time.

    $bb->gmt_offset = -5;

    // Change this to localize bbPress. A corresponding MO file for the

    // chosen language must be installed to bb-includes/languages.

    // For example, install to bb-includes/languages and set BBLANG to ‘de’

    // to enable German language support.

    define(‘BBLANG’, ”);

    // Your Akismet Key. You do not need a key to run bbPress, but if you want to take advantage

    // of Akismet’s powerful spam blocking, you’ll need one. You can get an Akismet key at


    $bb->akismet_key = ‘*******’;

    // The rest is only useful if you are integrating bbPress with WordPress.

    // If you’re not, just leave the rest as it is.

    $bb->wp_table_prefix = ‘***’; // WordPress table prefix. Example: ‘wp_’;

    $bb->wp_home = ‘;; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // No trailing slash

    $bb->wp_siteurl = ‘;; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // No trailing slash

    /* Stop editing */

    define(‘BBPATH’, dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/’ );

    require_once( BBPATH . ‘bb-settings.php’ );
