On my website (http://www.algebrahelper.x10hosting.com) I made a user feedback section where people can place their feedback onto a page of the website. It works like this: The feedback page is a file that gets edited each time a user submits feedback using PHP's fread and fwrite. This works fine, but I just have one problem. Whenever somebody submits a symbol, such as " ' / , etc. it appears with a backslash infront of it. This isn't a huge problem but prohibits users from posting some html tags. How can I stop/fix this? Please tell me if more detail is needed. Thanks!
