Support » Plugins and Hacks » attribute_escape( ) and stripslashes()

  • For a plugin that needs to cope with chinese names and characters I’m using:
    htmlentities(trim($value), ENT_QUOTES, "UTF-8");

    (for data fields that might also end up being post titles).

    When the data is being parroted back at the user via a form, is there any reason not to do something like :

    stripslashes(attribute_escape($value))

    (I figure attribute_escape being native to the WordPress platform might deserve to be respected/retained but I don’t want to show escaped ‘quotes’ e.g. \' as its a critical part of many chinese names)
