DataAssist update breaks all links

DataAssist update breaks all links

not sure if this is a DataAssist issue or an iRite issue since i'm using them both togther, but the problem is this:

every time i UPDATE a DataAssist page (i.e. "projects_update.php"), it adds a set of quotation marks to any link or inserted image in the iRite field, thus breaking the link.

where are these quotation marks coming from and why are they happening each time? for example, if i update the page twice, it adds TWO sets of quotation marks, and on and on, so that i can end up with something crazy like """"http://www.anydomain.com/""""

help!
thanks, jean

Most likely you are encoding or escaping the quotes in the default value of your irite field.

Update your iRite and make sure the default value is passed straight through from the datbase field with no encoding.

you were RIGHT. somehow, there was a "str_replace()" adding quotes to the iRite update field. thanks Ray!

I can even explain how... DataAssist adds it because if you were to show that content in a text field or some other standard form element it is necessary.

When you replaced the dataAssist created field with iRite you kept the default value specified, but you need to remove the str_replace() when adding iRite because iRite doesn't need any encoding since it is set up to handle complex strings already.

Similar problem

Hi

I've been having a similar problem.

The code in my update page looks like this

<?php
// WebAssist iRite: Rich Text Editor for Dreamweaver
$WARichTextEditor_1 = CreateRichTextEditor ("strap", "../WA_iRite/", "100%", "100px", "Custom", "../custom/news_Update_strap1.js", "".(str_replace('"', '&quot;', $row_WADAnews['strap'])) ."");
?>


How should I rewrite that to fix the problem?

Thanks

Phil

update:

(str_replace('"', '&quot;', $row_WADAnews['strap']))

to:

$row_WADAnews['strap']
