DFP Upload with fine name containing single quote

DFP Upload with fine name containing single quote

I am using the File Upload in DFP from SuperSuite on a site where users are able to upload files. I have noticed that sometimes a file containing a single quite is uploaded and the single quote in the filename is changed to \'

So for example, if I start with the file:

Test File'.txt

I end up with:

Test File\'.txt

I am sure most of my users are using Windows so the single quote is a valid character in the file name. The slash is much more of an issue as file names go.

The problem is that I can not tell where this conversion is taking place and I really need to just prevent users from uploading files with a single quote in the name in the first place. I also do not want to end up with the \' in the name. I am ok with just removing the character, I just need to figure out where and possibly what the best way to do this might be.

add the following code at line 1 to strip the \' from the file name:


php:
<?php

if(isset($_FILES['fileField'])) {
    
$_FILES['fileField'] = str_replace(array("\\","'"),"",$_FILES['fileField']);
}
?>




where "fileField" is the name of your file field

Thanks but this did not work.

I added the code to line one of one of the two pages that I am doing uploads from, changed fileField to upload and I still have exactly the same results.

It seems to me that I pass through this code when the page is loaded, not when the file is uploaded. So I am wondering if this is the correct place to add this code?

It would seem to me that this needs to be added somewhere within helperphp.php but where is the $1000 question because the code is not all that easy to follow. I know it is not the beginning of that file because it will have exactly the same effect as adding it to the beginning of my file.

hmmmm, that page works to strip out the slash and single quote on my computer, maybe try changing the code to this:

php:
<?php

// Code added to strip single quote from any entered file name
if(isset($_FILES['upload']['name'])) { 
    
$_FILES['upload']['name'] = str_replace(array("\\","'"),"",$_FILES['upload']['name']); 

?>
