I using a WYSIWYG editor which post image path like 'com_images/pic.jpg' and I need to convert it like http://www.exploroo.com/com_images/pic.jpg before submit to database or display properly on a webpage

I tried like > 

<?php
echo str_replace('src="com_images','http:\\www.exploroo.com/com_images',$_POST['text']);
?>

but it display like > <img src="http:\www.exploroo.com/com_images/pic,jpg" alt="" width="231" height="154" />

it avoids one backslash .. how could i avoid the problem

Double your backslash (ie, 4 backslashed):

\\\\

The backslash is a escape character. You have to double it to write one.
