Replace PHP string

  • # February 23, 2012 at 2:15 pm

    So this is my code, it’s supposed to replace with


    as well as ending, and fix line break within a PHP form submit action.

    $questions = $_REQUEST;
    $comment2 = htmlentities($questions, ENT_QUOTES);
    $question3 = ereg_replace( "n", "
    ", $comment2);
    $question4 = ereg_replace( "<code>", "
    ", $question3);
    $question = ereg_replace( "</code>", "

    ", $question4);

    I don't have access to test now, so I'll get back to you

    @karlpcrowley – Thank’s :) – I saw another problem I fixed (and after that, it worked). When inserting info into my database, I have to use ', so when


    came, it messed up, so I just edited the pre to


    instead! :)
    Thank's for your wonderful help!

    no problem, don’t know why I didn’t think of leaving the class unquoted

    Some things just slip our minds sometimes, it’s funny how that works!
