Description

Exporting a WordPress site and importing it again will lose backslashes in Post content.
For example, if you had a post discussing c:\Windows\System32\calc.exe it would be imported as c:WindowsSystem32calc.exe

  • Component changed from Export to Import

I believe this is a bug in the importer, not the exporter. The exporter is writing the data out correctly (as regular text), but the importer is removing a layer of slashes.

(See also this issue on the v2 beta importer)
