Remove Slashes

I have this variable with slashes using mysql_real_escape_string (). I want to remove the slashes away from the variable without removing the etc.

$title = mysql_real_escape_string( $_POST['title'] );
In the variable that is currently being inputed: Miki Koishikawa's ordinary life...
Input in the database (as you may already know): Miki Koishikawa's ordinary life...

As you can see what is left is the 's. I can't use stripslashes () because that would remove the from and that would leave me with rn.


Using Str_replace() To Remove The Forward Slashes

I've recently had to migrate an Access database to MySQL. Everything appeared to work fine, but now I'm finding lots of semi-quotes prefixed with forward-slashes, as if to escape them, when outputting them.

As a quick fix, before tackling the actual database issue, I tried using str_replace() to remove the forward slashes and leave just the semi-quotes in tact. Code:

Slashes -- To Add, Or Not To Add?

I use addslashes() for data being submited to MySQL via forms by public users, but the other day, while playing around I tired a script with out addingslashes. I'm running PHP4 and don't have the magic quotes on -- I was able to enter ", ', >,?,etc. and odd characters via form into the database without any errors or problems --the same info was also retireved fine.

Does PHP4 automatically addslashes? Is it still considered good practice to add them? -- and strip them on data retrieval?

Getting Rid Of The Slashes

We moved our site to PHP, and for a while we had our addslash setting so that any quotes were displaying with . As a result, we have a database full of text containing .

Slashes In Forms

Ok. I have checked the magic quotes is on. I have a form on my web
page. The input from this is sent (by POST) to the server. A PHP script
processes it. If there any errors the input is urlencoded and returned
to the webpage with the form in the URL. I am not using add or strip
slashes in my script (except for the testing I did that is explained

If the user inserts slashes or double quotes - when these are returned
to the form they are slashed. If one backslash is inserted, 4
backslashes appear when the form is redisplayed. If I enter a double
quote this is returned as 3 backslashes (the double quote disappears).

If I stripslashes() before returning the input to the form, one
backslash becomes 2 backslashes and a double quote is returned as 1
backslash (but again the double quote disappears).

Pg_escape_string And Too Many Slashes

I have a web form with text fields.

When the form is submitted, it goes to a php page to insert into a
Postgres DB.


pg_query($db,"INSERT INTO table VALUES = ('" .
pg_escape_string($_POST['formfield']) . "')";

However, and I could swear this didn't always happen, now it seems that
if the formfield has a ' in it (i.e. "Sugapablo's music") then when I
would return that field on another page such as:

echo $row['field'];

It would show up: Sugapablo's music

Every subsequent time I would submit that form, a slash would be added
before each and '. Sometimes producing: Sugapablo\\'s music

Shouldn't the slash be elimnated before it get's into the database? Why
is it remaining. By submitting "INSERT INTO table VALUES ('Sugapablo's
music') actually put "Sugapablo's music" into that field?

I've also had the same problem with addslashes().

When To Add Slashes And When To Strip Them Out

When I first started with PHP, I was working on a server with Magic Quotes turned on. Fine, I was new and it probably saved a lot of trouble in those early days.

But now I feel experienced enough to get by without it, and I now have the opportunity to develop sites on a host where I can turn off magic quotes if I like. So I figured I'd go for it.

My question is, for security and/or convenience purposes, when do I need to addslashes to user input, and when do I need to stripslashes? Code:

Another Slashes Question

I have a page that searches an Excel file and returns the matches. The problem I have run into is some of the cells contain data like this “HP/Agilent.

If I enter HP/Agilent into the search field I get this error: Warning: preg_match(): Unknown modifier 'a' in /search.php on line 227

If I strip the slashes out, it does not find a match. I have also tried addslashes() and that doesn’t work. I need to be able to have the / when entered into the search field.

Slashes & MySQL

The code for insetion and retrieval works fine, but I need it to be inserted as:

Basically to add slashes to quotes, etc, because the output uses javascript and that creates problems.

Slashes In PHP5

But now once I installed it in my new dedicated server. i have this issue with data intered in textarea are injected into the database with slashes on them wherever there is a single quote or double quote (ie..'=> '). I thought this was only a problem with php4 that required a "stripslahses()" function to fix.

Need To Strip The Slashes Out Of Many Variables...

I need to strip the slashes out of many variables being passed between multiple forms. Unfortunately, one of those variables is an array, so the script was choking on the array to string conversion. To work around this, I coded the script to...

(a) copy the array from $_POST into a variable.
(b) set the array in $_POST to an empty string.
(c) strip the slashes from everything in $_POST and copy to a portable array.
(d) copy the variable from (a) into a slot in the portable array from (c).
(e) send the portable array on it's way.

This worked. No errors. The slashes are gone. The variable and array values are moving.

But I'm afraid I'm not experienced enough with PHP to know whether this is a stable/reliable/safe way to handle this situation. Are there easier or better ways to accomplish this using one of PHP's many functions of which I am blissfully unaware?

Here's the code for the function. Thanks in advance for any replies.

function fetch_postvalues() {
$cats = $_POST['cats'];
$_POST['cats'] = ''
$entry_values = get_magic_quotes_gpc()? array_map('stripslashes', $_POST) : $_POST;
$entry_values['cats'] = $cats;
return $entry_values;

Htmlentities Adds Slashes - Why?

I'm using Apache/1.3.28 (SuSE 7.1, kernal 2.4) with PHP/4.3.2. I have the
following code to help cleanse form data.

function cleanData($sourceData, &$cleanData)
{ foreach($myData as $fieldName=>$fieldValue)
{ if(strlen($fieldValue)>0)
{ $cleanData[$fieldName]=htmlentities(trim($fieldValue)); }
{ $cleanData[$fieldName]=""; }


cleanData($_POST, $formData);

I tested the code and found a was placed before double quotes
automatically - I have had to use stripslashes to clean the offending
slashes but I was wondering why they appeared the first place. A view
source of my html code, via my client browser produced the following (until
I used stripslashes which removed the slashes).


What is the recommended action here? Is it something I need switch off in
php.ini or is it safer for me just to continue and use stripslashes as part
of my function?
