Support » Plugins » Sanitzing user input with kses

  • Resolved billsaysthis


    I’m writing a plugin and need to sanitize user-supplied value for one of the options. The string can use some basic HTML tags and href can go to either http or https but that’s all. So I’m writing a custom callback based on OZH’s great article.

    However all I can manage to get is the initial < being converted to an ampersand.

    Code is next, can someone advise on what I should do differently?


    function km_msg_filter($inp) {
      $allowed = array('a' => array(),'b' => array(),'strong' => array(),'i' => array(),'em' => array());
      $prot = array('http','https');
      $inp[0] = wp_kses($inp[0], $allowed, $prot);
      return $inp;
