Extra backslash when passing variables

Recommended Posts

Hi, don't suppose anyone can tell me why when I pass this variable:

pgtitle=Coast to Coast '06: post4

in the following address:


it displays the title with an extra backslash in, i.e. "Coast to Coast \'06: post4" instead of just "Coast to Coast '06: post4"? However, if you take the apostrophe out of the '06, it displays fine, like here:


It seems that it's interpreting %20' as a space AND a backslash. All seems a bit odd to me.

Oh, and you can see the php here:

The single quote causes the addition of the backslash. You can remove it by issuing the PHP stripslashes command. See PHP documentation  [url=http://nl3.php.net/manual/en/function.stripslashes.php]http://nl3.php.net/manual/en/function.stripslashes.php[/url].
