Quoted text disapearing in text input boxes
Posted 14 March 2006 - 04:12 AM
This is rather embarassing given my 4 years of php coding experience but I've noticed when I'm pulling quoted text from a database into a input text field, the entire text w/in the quotes, and the quotes themselves disappears.
For instance, if I try to echo this string: this is "text", only the string: this is will show up in the text input box.
I know there has to something stupid I'm missing

Edit: Forgive me, addslashes() should be applied before putting the information in the database. In your query, try using ' ' instead of " ", it sounds like a problem of exiting the string prematurely.

Why haven't I ever used htmlentities()?
Thanks again all
