I noticed that whenever a song is clicked on that has an apostrophe in the
name, an error is now being generated.
The song still plays and the name is reported correctly.

So how can I detect any and all 's within a string and convert them to the
%27 version?

I had a look at preg-match and don't think that will help.

<?php
if ($show="none"){$song=$playme[$number][4];}
if ($show!="none") {$song=$playme[$show][4];}

echo 'jwplayer("player").setup({';
echo ' file: "'.$song.'.mp3",';
echo ' width: 480,';
echo ' height: 30,';
echo ' autostart:true';
echo '});';
?>

Use the rawurlencode() function

Oh, so you ARE Mr. Oldies.

Funny, you claimed you haven't posted with another nick in 3 years,
yet you posted less than a month ago as Mr. Oldies.

evan, go over to fisherman's wharf and try out a puffer fish.
I hear they are delicious!

But you have claimed I have posted using other nicks such as RD Sandman.
Most people in this group and the other web help groups all know I am
Mroldies as I have posted that website under this nick numerous times in
the past.
So what?

Now take a one way trip to alcatraz.

You've also posted as horse.

Yes, everyone knows you are mr oldies, so you just admitted you lied.

"I have not posted with another nick in 3 years."
"yes, I posted as mr. oldies last week."

So which one is it, bullis?

How's that dome home coming along?

Why do i see this error:
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds
to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 's Now Or
Never ',' It's Now Or Never ',1) ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE hits=hits+1' at
line 1

on this link:
http://www.mroldies.net/200/audiox1.php?play=6

Can you not see that this is not a proper MySQL statement?

Nut you better fix this now than never.......

Precisely why I am asking how to fix.
The error stems from the fact that the echo statement "sees" a single quote
as part of the structure of the statement itself. NOT as a string.
IOW, "Hey stupid....your quotes don't match!"

It is not a MYSQL problem. it is purely a syntax matter.

Dufus was using the wrong array item number!
that was the main reason why I switched to using numbers instead of full
names!
So I wouldn't have to worry about the damn special characters.

That was the actual reason for the error message.
Or why the songs would not load.

Why aren't you answering his question? Maybe because you are an
ignorant troll?

As you have been told MANY, MANY times before. You need to escape ALL
of the strings you use when accessing ANY SQL database (not just MySQL).

Is there a particular reason you like to answer your own questions?

Because I know bullis lacks the mental capability of answering the
