  Subject: HTML characters in data file
  Posted: 11/17/2003 at 3:09:59 pm

Hi, This looks to be a great script in my limited testing. I noticed one thing, though. My form asks for a URL (e.g. <input name="URL" type="text" id="URL" size="25"> )

When I check the data file, the URL data is written as

http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mysite.com%mydirectory%2Fmypage.php

I hope this displays correctly in this forum - all the colon slash slash (://) and single slash (/) characters in the URL are transformed into the html code equivilents, rather than the actual data.

Is this likely to be the result of a setting I made, or is it just the way the script handles that type of data input?

Thanks

Yeah, that is actualy to prevent vulnerabilities, however I am updated the file recently to cut that out and still make it work, you can re-download the update at:

http://www.bizmailform.com/update/bmf9_3.zip

This will just contain the bizmail.cgi You can reupload this after configuring and you should be all set.

Oops, I spoke too soon. I downloaded the patch, corrected the settings and uploaded to my server. But when I ran a test, the same thing happened - all the colon slash slash (://) and single slash (/) characters in the URL are transformed into the html code equivilents, rather than the actual data.

What now?

Try re-dowloading the update file, should work then. I missed something when I updated it.

Ok, the new script as I have it works fine on everything except spaces are replaced with "+" symbols. Would the following change those +s to space?

$value2 =~ s/(\+)+/( )/g;

Thanks...
