urgent form change text for input

I am using a rtf editor to insert my article section and it works if text is simple without
' , " , { , } etc but if article uses this they will create problem. the query string ends when it detects ' " like chars

Instead of echoing rtf directly use echo htmlspecialchars($rtf_text) or echo htmlentities($rtf_text);


thanks it is saving but when i call back it is making htnl hard code not text but when I tried this

it is working fine for me
$BodyText = stripslashes(urldecode($_POST["BodyText"]));

Hi, I would recommend when you insert the text into your database, use addslashes and then when returning a value to the page, use stripslashes.  Very useful functions.

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Huji, I'm still happy to assist the questioner and felt that the addslashes and stripslashes command would be sufficient.  I can however provide a function that I use on a regular basis which uses these same functions when inserting into the database.
