  1. Ah, I thought you were talking about the apostrophes and not the slashes. The slashes are defininately not in the database. I have no clue what is causing the slashes to appear. The url is called using this: <a class="entry-thumbnails-link" href="<?php echo $url1.'Themes'.$url2.urlencode($rowThemes['Theme']); ?>"> Where: $relative = 'http://www.domain.com/wp-content/'; $url1= $relative . 'themes/itemspec.php?type='; $url2='&item='; with $rowThemes['Theme'] containing the Theme name (in this case: Children's Hosiptal). The url results in this: http://localhost/wp-content/themes/itemspec.php?type=Themes&item=Children%27s%20Hospital the item is then called using this: $item = stripslashes(urldecode($_GET['item'])); Obviously, I would prefer it if I did not have to use stripslashes.
  2. I don't see what the logic is in "fixing" my data. Some thing simply need apostrophes. Why are slashes inserted to begin with anyway?
  3. Using rawurlencode and rawurldecode results in this being stored in the variable: Children\'s Hospital Using urlencode and urldecode results in this being stored in the variable: UCSF Benioff Children\'s Hospital So both methods result in the same incorrect output. Is there any way to rectify this?
  4. I've tried using that to no avail. I get the same error. I'm using a $_GET which if I understand correctly, automatically decodes anyway...
  5. My database isn't finding the item after retrieving it: <a href="<?php echo $url1.'Themes'.$url2.urlencode($rowThemes['Theme']); ?>"> The url appears as: http://www.domain.com/wp-content/themes/arjuna-x/itemspec.php?type=Themes&item=April+Fool%27s My itemspec.php code: <?php include("../../../wp-blog-header.php"); ?> <?php if (isset($_GET['item'])) { include("variables.php"); switch (trim($table)) { case 'Mystery': $Name = 'Mystery'; break; case 'Themes': $Name = 'Theme'; break; default: $Name = 'Name'; break; } switch (trim($table)) { case 'Themes': $sql = "SELECT * FROM " . $table . " WHERE ". $Name . " = '" . mysql_real_escape_string($item) . "'"; break; default: $sql = "SELECT * FROM " . $table . " LEFT JOIN " . $table . "Themes USING ($Name) LEFT JOIN " . $table . "Methods USING ($Name) WHERE " . $table . "." . $Name . " = '" . mysql_real_escape_string($item) . "'"; break; } $answer = mysql_query($sql); if ($answer) { if (mysql_num_rows($answer) > 0) { $row = mysql_fetch_assoc($answer); ?> BUNCH OF SITE STUFF <?php } else { echo "No $table found by that name."; } } else { echo "No type found by that name."; } } else { echo "No type or item selected."; } ?> The error I'm getting is: No Themes found by that name. The code is working for those themes without postrophes.
  6. I have the following code that outputs a url. It searches my MySQL database for the name of a given item within a theme: $relative = 'http://www.domain.com/wp-content/'; $url1= $relative . 'themes/arjuna-x/itemspec.php?type='; $url2='&item='; <a class="entry-thumbnails-link" href="<?php echo $url1.'Themes'.$url2.$rowThemes['Theme']; ?>"> The output is as follows: http://www.domain.com/wp-content/themes/arjuna-x/itemspec.php?type=Themes&item=(insert variable here) All is good up to this point. My problem however, is that some items (in this case: theme names) have apostrophes in them. For example: April Fool's. This results in breaking my php code. How can I get php to call these variables with apostrophes so that they don't break my php?
