[Solved]Need ideas how to load date to my editor using php


Recommended Posts

fist thing I can think of is passing contents to editor from php by using str_replace() with <textarea id="Editor" style="height:300px; width:600px"></textarea> but then I found that since I have ' and "" in my contents which means that if I add value="something" then " would break it.Next thing I thought about was to convert it into hex code but then I found that when I set it's value, i cant have func call in value="" which means I wont be able to put hex string back to normal string. any other ideas?Edit: I found that I can set value by seeting text between <textarea> tags, but problem is that if comment contains </textarea>, then it cuts anything after that.
