I do not really understand your question.

What is being output now and what do you want to output instead?

What exactly is the url (the value of $get2[‘mname’]) before encoding and after encoding?

my question is simply that how i can finish spaces in my url and replace that spaces with thi sign _ and which thing i replace with this _ how i again clean that query
for example

i am passing a variable which is exactly a movie name like this
THE TERMINATOR this is variable which m passing
i want that when it show in url the space between VARIABLE finish and it shows like
THE_TERMINATOR
but because of _ my variable name change so i want that it change only in url not in real which m passing on page thanks :slight_smile:

You need to use str_replace() for this.

echo “<td width=‘250’><a href='”.str_replace(“_”, " ", rawurlencodeCOLOR=#007700).“.htm’>”.$get2[‘mname’]."</a></td> ";[/COLOR]

I think it is the english that’s the trouble understanding, not the simplicity of the question.

thanks for remembering this function
