How to url-encode a string being passed as a query?

Recommended Posts

I am working on some traffic stats code and for reasons best known to myself, I am using both server side code and client side code to get as much reliable info as possible about each visitor.

Sometimes the server side cannot get the referrer string, in which case I have the client side send it from javascript as a query to a PHP script. It all works great except, I notice that if the referrer string itself contains queries, I only get the first one and the rest of it is cut off. I am assuming that this is because of the ampersand after the first query not being url-encoded.

Does anyone know a way to url-encode the string or will I have to do it manually by working through the string looking for the ampersands and replacing with the encoded characters?

for JS you gotta build the url-encode yourself using the replace() function. it should be easy since you only need to replace the & character.

Well it's amazing what you can find when you look - I just consulted The Javascript Bible and discovered a little function called escape() which does exactly the job I needed.
