Problem with " and ' (solved)

Postby Fifi on Thu Nov 08, 2007 9:45 pm

I have already post this question in the french forum, but nobody answers...

When I test my CMS off line, WYMeditor create a good text with correct XHTML. Links, images, quote and double quote are correctly rewritten.
But, on line... I've got this :
a \ before all the quote and double quote
all the links : <a href="%5C%22http://www...
Images : <img alt="\&quot;...

What cause this problem ? How can I resolve it ?

(my website is at OVH)

Lorsque je teste mon CMS en local, WYMeditor génère un texte qui s'affiche correctement sur une page web.
Par contre, pour le test en ligne j'ai ça :
Les apostrophes et guillemets sont précédés d'un \
et dans le code XHTML
Les liens sont écrits ainsi : <a href="%5C%22http://www...
Les images : <img alt="\&quot;...

D'où vient le souci de problème ? Quelle est la solution ?

(Mon site est hébergé chez OVH)

It looks like this is not a Wymeditor problem.
I suggest that you are using wymeditor to edit data that is stored in database. When you make a query to update your database your engine adds slashes to all quotes to prevent SQL-injections.
To solve this problem you need to remove all slashes after SELECTing data from database. If you're using PHP you can use function stripslashes();

Hi Kuzma, thanks for your help.

I don't use a database, here... I use WYMeditor to edit an XHTML file witch will be the content of a webpage.

Anyway, I think I've solve the problem... I use stripSlashes(); each time I read or write the text...
