hi there - I#m kind of going crazy with a small problem.
In my plugin i call
update_post_meta($post_id, $field['id'], $new); - it's working fine on one machine. but on the other machine the string in ´$new´ won't be added to the database. It seems like no strings (ASCII) from a variable are added. If I change the value to an integer or just adding a string like this 'string' - it's all fine.
