    Dear All,

    We have noted the below errors thrown when queries contain ‘ (apostrophe sign punctuation mark) :


    [08-Mar-2016 10:22:22 UTC] Error of WordPress database You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘entendre%’ AND

    FROM wp_posts

    We have autocomplete enabled and our index table is currently being built / completed as well.

    We would appreciate your support,

    Many thanks,

    Best regards

    Hi Marto!

    This is indeed an issue related to some special characters which need escaping. I have got reports earlier this week about the same problem, I will investigate and fix them for the upcoming update. Luckily it’s not a security issue, as the problem is caused by escaping the special characters twice by accident, instead of once. Unfortunately MySql can’t deal with that, so the query with the special character is simply not executed.

    Keep an eye for the upcoming update, this problem should be fixed with it’s release!
