don't want html tags in my forum

Postby tranquillo » Sun Jun 01, 2003 5:16 am


I've built a forum/guestbook thing for a website. it's verry basic. it simply writes text into a database and then shows it on a new page. the problem is that if someone writes a html tag such as a <img src...> the image will show... I don't want that...
can someone help me with this?

another option is to use htmlspecialchars().

this will turn all chars that html useses into the equivalent html character.
