I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..
The backslash that it adds is intended for the mysql database to stop entries with the like of what's where the ' is interpreted differently by mysql..
I understand that but when you edited a product, it doesn't put the backslashes in there, only when you do a "back" from the preview page. There has got to be an easy way to fix this, my client is driving me insane about this one stupid thing..
I think there has been posts on this before something about using stripslashes for one part then replacing slashes when the update is used..
Possibly try a search on stripslashes as I cannot remember the specific thread there have been a few..
Forget my previous post I think it is a red herring..
I can't believe this isnt a bigger problem. My client is absolutely going ape**** over it...
Clients tend to do that....
They think that since they give you money, you're supposed to do stuff for them... hee hee hee.
It makes it a lot harder though when a little thing like that turns out to be an issue where a lot of code needs to be rewritten..
Remove the back button and problem solved..
You can try adding.
Php_flag magic_quotes_runtime off.
Php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off.
To your .htaccess file..
Yeah!! Ditto on that! I added that to the .htaccess file and it fixes the problem with backslashes.
When editing a product with special characters like a double-quote, click on preview, then click on back and the description will now have \" instead of ". Does anyone know of a fix for this?.
When doing this type of editing never, ever use the back button.
It does exactly that, adds the \..
