both of these have names for new minis, and pictures/tags for the stalagmites 

Basic edit has been completed, pictures removed, temporary tags added. More thorough tagging can be resolved later.

Note: There is a typo in the front page announcement for July 3rd. D'Mona has a \ in it (D'\Mona). Link still works thou.

So there's this thing called sanitizing your data. It basically takes characters that have a special meaning inside the various programming languages and does something so that the language will treat them as text instead of as instructions. in this instance ' designates the beginning and end of a string, as in 'DMona'. If we enter 'D'Mona' now there's 3 apostrophes and the computer gets confused. so sanitization takes the mark inside the string and adds a slash, meaning "ignore the next character". 'D\'Mona' 

Normally, we run another filter on the sanitized data to remove the slashes, but sometimes we either don't, or for a variety of reasons, it doesn't work the way it should. 

 

If you want to know more, there's lots of interesting articles about SQL Injection and why when I first learned to code I sanitized everything three times (which was overkill) because of how dangerous unsanitized code is.

I only got through the first sentence of Bryan's reply before thinking "I wonder if Bobby Drop Tables has been referenced yet".

 

Too late, of course.

That's exactly what I was thinking of, too.

 

But it is overkill to sanitize inputs when entered, again when written to the cookie, and again when the cookie is stored in the database.

Don't you guys have a decent framework that takes care of that for you? Seems like almost every environment I code in anymore requires only minimal manual sanitizing.
