Input/Output MySQL problem

Posted on 2007-03-27

Hi guys,

I'm storing values in mysql database like this:

mysql_query("UPDATE galleriesList SET name = '".mysql_real_escape_string($galleryspecs[$j][1])."'  WHERE id = '".$galleryspecs[$j][0]."'") or die(mysql_error());

So for example if I put in Te'st it shows up in database as Te\'st. Then I get value from database and put it in input:

echo "<input type='text' value='".$row["name"]."'>";

I want to get Te'st in input but all I get is just Te\
What can be the problem? Thank you.

It appears to have something to do with the single apostraphie.

if you place similar code inside:

<html>
<input type="text" value="<?PHP echo stripslashes("it\'s a winner"); ?>" />
</html>

You get "it's a winner", yet if you use single quote:

<html>
<input type="text" value="<?PHP echo stripslashes('it\'s a winner'); ?>" />
</html>

You get "it".

My suggestion is perhaps just use standard HTML for your form.

Woops,

<input type="text" value="<?PHP echo stripslashes('it\'s a winner'); ?>" />

should be

<input type="text" value='<?PHP echo stripslashes("it\'s a winner"); ?>' />

in the above example

I'm going to split points because just stripslashes wouldn't do me any good. I had to replace single quotes to make it work.
