please help, this is driving me mad! I’m a PHP Dummy and I’ve been looking for a solution to this all afternoon. I either couldn’t find the answer or didn’t understand - It’s probably more likely the latter.
I have been building a new site in wordpress and I’ve implemented a bulk importing script which has worked very nicely in the past. The thing is that I now need to input some information in the input fields that are in their html entities.
This is what I’m trying to put in:
as you can see, the script is puttin in the ‘<’ and ‘>’ and the " symbols instead of the ‘<’ and ‘>’ and " HTML entities.
The input field in the script for this line is as follows:
value="<?php echo stripslashes(htmlspecialchars($embedTemp)); ?>"
I’ve tried all kinds of things, html_entity_decode, ENT_NOQUOTES, etc (probably not in the correct configuration by the way)
I can go into the database and change it to what I want and the script works fine until I update the template and POOF! it’s back to putting the < " symbols in.
Please, please, please can anyone tell me what it is I need to put in the value field to stop this happening?
