Strange Drupal Behavior - 7.x {C}

Post date: Mar 11, 2014 2:34:56 PM

Fairly Recently one of the sites I manage started inserting {C} in to various places in the forms on the site. I would go in and remove them, and used both the WYSIWYG editor and used the Source directly and removed them... but oddly enough, they come back. Usually in groups. {C}{C}{C}

It's easy enough to delete them, and click Save. And, initially they are gone for a time, a day, two, maybe a week. They just re-occur.

Well today, I noticed something that I hadn't noticed before. A pattern. The {C} characters would appear in source directly preceding old fashioned HTML Comments. Anything like: <!-- Custom Text Here -->. So, I tried something different, I removed the {C} and the comment. The strange character insertions stopped.

Odd behavior, but, there is a way to stop them from popping up though!
