I recently noticed a problem when editing one of my articles.

If I save something to the database such as:

That 70's show

The item is saved properly...

However when I try to edit the article, whatever was after the ' (tickmark) will not show. I.e That 70

I assume it has something to do with this XOOPS form element code:

Quote:
$sform -> addElement( new XoopsFormText( 'Favorite TV Show:', 'favoritetvshow', 50, 80, $favoritetvshow) );


I tried this:

Quote:
$sform -> addElement( new XoopsFormText( 'Favorite TV Show:', 'favoritetvshow', 50, 80, addSlashes($favoritetvshow)) );


But it only gave me:

That 70\

How can I get the addSlashes PHP code in the retrival of this entry? It is used in the saving process.
I am using the News module but have added my own custom field.

Thanks!

Might be an old post but I ran into the same problem today.

I solved it by doing the following:
htmlspecialchars($contentENT_QUOTES)

instead of :
addslashes($content)


and to get the content back :
unhtmlentities($content)


and the function unhtmlentities is as follows :
function unhtmlentities ($string) {
   
$trans_tbl =get_html_translation_table (HTML_ENTITIES );
   
$trans_tbl =array_flip ($trans_tbl );
   return 
strtr ($string ,$trans_tbl );
}

There are functions with XOOPS to handle slashes (as there are function within php to handle these)

You could use $myts class like thus

$myts = &MyTextSanitizer :: getInstance();

While saving text
$your_text = $myts ->addslashes($text);

When displaing text
$your_text = $myts->htmlSpecialChars($myts ->stripSlashesGPC($text ));

Should be enough to do what you where trying to do.
