Joomla 3 Back slashes

Apr 24, 2013 by jomnew
hi
    When I insert quotation marks in my articles they appear with back slashes for example “this is how it works” will appear like \”this is how it works\” . The same thing happens with apostrophies ‘ so it’s shows as it\’s. How can I fix this?
Any help will be appreciated
thanks

This is caused by a PHP setting on your server: the magic_quotes_gpc must be on.
Joomla 3.0 requires PHP with magic quotes to be off
