Php and MySQL database problem with retrieving data with double quotes

Go to solution Solved by imgrooot,

I have an html form that inserts a record into database. I also have a an html edit form that retrieves the data from the database. Normally everything works. But I just noticed that I have an issue if I use double quotes in the form field.  It'll insert into the database fine.  The problem arises when outputting the variable in the form field.  If I echo it outside the form field, it'll show up fine with the double quotes.  But inside the field, I only geta partial string. 


For eg.


$variable_input = '5 3/4" Glitter Concealed Platform Pump';


The above will insert to the database.  But if I retrieve it in the form field below, it'll return with one number only.


<input type="text" name="title" value="5" />


Is there a way to fix the variable output of the wording that includes the double quotes?
