I have a problem. I have written a web app that takes results from an Informix DB. this DB is part of a legacy system and as such, I cant change the data in it. i am only writing something that outputs the data.
One of the DB fields holds placenems and these in some cases are two words ie: San Diego. Now, there is a second page which produces further results depending on the placename. I pass the placename value to the next page in the URL but, and here's the problem:
Normally, I pass the value like so: link.php?name=$placename If the placename is Dublin then the link would be
However, if the placename is San Diego this becomes
When I try to pass this in the URL it doesnt work and only passes it like this:
As such, this messes up the query that relies on the $name value on the link.php page.
Anyone got any ideas?
