Okay

I know I'm doing something wrong with my stripslashes code.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

In my New Syndicated News module, I am using:
Code:
$title = addslashes(stripslashes($title));

$description = addslashes(stripslashes($description));

to replace what CPG-Nuke used to have as:
Code:
$title = Fix_Quotes($title);

$description = Fix_Quotes($description);

but using this meathod, all of my links with a single quote (or ' if you will) come out like "&apos"

Should I be using something like:

Code:
$title = stripslashes(['$title'], "nohtml");

$description = stripslashes(['$description'], "nohtml");


Obviously, I shouldn't have to worry about the nohtml (since I'm taking RSS feeds, but I'm having a brain fart kind of day working on about 20 different things and for the life of me just can't remember how I should be doing this.

Ideas?

Thanks

There is a function FixQuotes in phpnuke that prolly does what they are doing with Fix_Quotes.

$var=check_html($var, "nohtml"); works for stripping html out unconditionally.

I still haven't gotten over there to check your module out. But I was checking out a class for RSS called magpie Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!
If you have a need for any hints its pretty cool code with a caching file based system.

Anyway...

I'm looking through my code, and I don't think that this is where my problem is (in the admin configuration for the reader listed above) but rather elsewhere. I first thought in the index.php code, but now I'm thinking it is in the includes file. The odd thing about this is even Nuke's Your_Account reader does the same thing with code coming out as '

Ideas?

Okay... Some more research on my part revealed that this is a problem with RSS Types.

As it turns out, everything works great, but only for UTF-8 Formatted RSS Feeds.

For feeds like RavenPHPScripts and NukeScripts Network that use:
Quote:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

<!DOCTYPE rss PUBLIC "-//Netscape Communications//DTD RSS 0.91//EN"
"http://my.netscape.com/publish/formats/rss-0.91.dtd">

<rss version="0.91">

Single quotes are simply stripped out completely which is fine I suppose. One thing I did notice with RavenPHPScripts backend.php is that when going to the link directly in a browser, I'm prompted to Open or Save the file and when selecting "open", I get the content in an editor window versus in a browser window.

This does not happen however with the Nukescripts.net backend.php file. With Nukescripts.net backend2.php file, I get an XML page cannot be displayed error saying:
Quote:
Access is denied. Error processing resource 'http://nukescripts.net/backend2.php'

With content formatted as:
Quote:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" ?>
- <rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:sy="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/syndication/" xmlns:admin="http://webns.net/mvcb/" xmlns:cc="http://web.resource.org/cc/" xmlns="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/">

single quotes for some reason are not filtered out, but rather come out as &apos while regular " quotes come out fine.

With sites formatted as simply:
Quote:
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<rss version="2.0">

I have the same &apos problem.

What I must assume is that my includes file needs some more work for formats beyond UTF-8. Additionally, since it looks like it is utilizing the PHP-Nuke reader (which has the &apos; problem in Your_Account as well) I'm wondering if this is something we can fix elsewhere.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks!

maybe an includes function to change &apos; back to '

Otherwise we're not HTML4 compliant:

Quote:
cannot generate system identifier for general entity "apos".


My only issues are RSS feeds with single quotes that nuke changes to &apos which get flagged by MIT's W3C HTML Validator.

In mainfile.php I got down to the function headlines

Quote:
function headlines($bid, $cenbox=0) {


And then found

Quote:
$content = stripslashes($row['content']);


and replaced that with:

Quote:
$content = ereg_replace("&apos;","'",stripslashes($row['content']));


And there went my HTML4 issue with &apos; in RSS feeds. I have 2 feeds and both do have occasional single quotes in their content. So this just makes sure &apos; becomes '
