Problem adding paypal link to database

Recommended Posts

When I submit a product using my admin panel, the PayPal button has slashes added to escape the double quotes in the paypal button. It's also adding slashes to my apostrophes. I didn't think it was suppose to add slashes, or they should atleast be pulled out on insert into the database?


function sanitize($formValue){
if(function_exists(get_magic_quotes_gpc()) && get_magic_quotes_gpc()) {	
$formValue = stripslashes($formValue);
$formValue = mysql_real_escape_string($formValue);
return $formValue;

I just checked to see when the slashes are added and they're placed in there prior to mysql_real_escape_string, which makes no sense.... the function is not called prior to that at all.


This is the form:

<form action="./product_process.php?do=add" method="post">
<p><label>Product Name:</label> <input type="text" name="product_name" size="30" />
<label>Product Price:</label> <input type="text" name="product_price" size="5" />
<p><label>Product Code:</label> <input type="text" name="product_code" size="30" /></p>
<p><label>Product Category:</label> <input type="text" name="product_category" size="30" /></p>
