    I really don't think it matters. for safe gaurd you should use addslashes all the time, but all it depends on how you want to code.
    in my opinion if you write a program that is going to go to a lot of people than I would use addslashes, as it is hard to tell if everyone will have magic_quotes on.

    magic quotes always does the trick for me.

    i think one time it didnt work, so it was easily fixed, would u recommend turning them off and always using addslashes, for compatibility?

    Thanks alot

    Everytime I submitted something with an apostrophe, i'd get a mysql cannot connect error. A friend of mine told me how to fix it..

    <?php
    $textarea = addslashes($textarea);
    ?>
