Hello,

I want to see if this exact string   href='r/  is contained in $mtopics
If not, then run 2 lines of code.

But, it always runs it, even if the string is present.
Can you help?

<?PHP
if(stristr($mtopics, "href='r/") === FALSE) {
$mtopics=str_replace("href='","href='$pre",$mtopics);
$reltopics=str_replace("href='","href='$pre",$reltopics);
}
?>

Thanks, Greg

Use the following:
<?PHP
if(stristr($mtopics, 'href=\'r/') === FALSE) {
$mtopics=str_replace("href='","href='$pre",$mtopics);
$reltopics=str_replace("href='","href='$pre",$reltopics);
}
?>
