How to display code as content using PHP as your programming language

Written by Ian Carnaghan · 26 sec read >

I have the following JavaScript code that I need to display as plain content on a page and when I add it the page handles it as code instead of content.

The code below I need to display as content

<script src="/fancybox/jquery-1.3.2.min.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>

Answer:

  • Use the ‘htmlspecialchars‘ PHP function tdisplay the code as content
    • htmlspecialchars – Convert special characters to HTML entities (PHP 4 & 5)
  • See the example below
    htmlspecialchars('<script src="/fancybox/jquery-1.3.2.min.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>');
  • The code above will display the below as content
    <script src="/fancybox/jquery-1.3.2.min.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>
