    add slashes

    i'm using

    $fullarticle=addslashes($_POST['fullarticle']);
    so that i don't have problems with ' but now they are showing as /' -- when I bring them up -- what can I do about this?

    when you retrieve your data and display it, use:
    PHP Code:
    stripslashes($data);

    When are you using this? Is it for inserting into a database?

    If so you may want to use
