Hi this is about PHP commands even though has mysql too. I go to mysql board when I find one they said MySQL is not necessarily PHP driven and if I want PHP specific questions to go to a PHP list.
How do you deal with forms, db storage of the data and calling it up in a form to edit? The online tutorials I have covered to not address this except with addslashes on one of them. My web page broke when I added a hyperlink in the description because of the ' Previously: used .asp and always set the db in a way similar to parameters? in MySQL Sometimes I did urlencode() on a get string to make the spaces and other characters work. tried addslashes and noticed it does add them, right in the db. Is this the standard? add and remove slashes? other thing confusing me is the htmlentities which may do this better? Thanks, Steve __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!
