I have a variable stored in mySql called colors. It is list of words seperated by commas. When I do a print_r as follows I get result
(  => pink,brown,tan )
$arr = array($colors); print_r($arr);
If I manually type the colors
$arr = array(pink,brown,tan); print_r($arr);
I get the result I want
(  => pink  => brown  => tan )
What am I missing? Thanks in advance!!!
