Hi Larry, I am progressively updating all my websites to use PDO for database actions rather than escape_data/mySQLi. Can you please recommend the safest way to store HTML links in a database table using PDO. Do they first need to be urlencoded, say, and/or quoted? I have searched via Google but have not found clear guidance (for my aged brain anyway). My code sequence is: 1) create a new PDO 2) create (say) SELECT with placeholders 3) prepare 4) bind parameters and values (one by one for clarity) 5) execute 6) check for successful execution all within a try/catch block then null the PDO. Looking forward to your advice. Cheers from Oz.
