I have installed and set up a journal at http://www.ibsu.edu.ge/journal then I have added information to about section. There I have faced the following problem, after each " (quotation sign) additional symbol ; is added. For example, the expression "edition" happens to come out ";edition"; and each time after saving that page one more ; is added to that expression, and it keeps to continue ";;edition";;. Look for more example at the About/Author Guidelines. It happens around the site, in any place after inserting quotation marks.
I am suspicious of the configuration of the server - something wrong either with PHP or with MySQL configuration. How this issue can be solved.

Hi salavat,

This is a weird problem. I've seen mysql adding \ for security reasons, but not ;.

Have you changed the OJS code in any way?

If not, then i would assume it's some sort of security by either PHP or Mysql. If you're using a hosting company, I would suggest asking them why this is happening.
