    Hyperlinks within Longtext Fields

    I was running on MySQL 4.1 and recently upgraded to 5.1.
    In some of my db fields I have always had hyperlinks to other related pages, etc. as a dynamic footer.

    Today I updated some of the basic text in the field and all the links returned with a \ before each "

    For example: "http://www.site.com/otherpage"

    is now: \"www.site.com/otherpage\"

    Basically breaking all the code in the field.

    Is there a setting I have changed by accident? Or an alternative way using phpMyAdmin to remove these \\ from the field when saving.

    Thanks for any suggestions...

    Must be something phpMyAdmin is doing. MySQL wouldn't do that to you by itself. Time to investigate the settings in phpMyAdmin, perhaps??

    Thanks. I am racking my brain looking through My PHP documentation and I simply cant find this behavior anywhere I look. Something is definitely awry.
