escaping single quotes in php output

  • I am generating a google map using advanced custom fields, it works great except that I have a lot of French text and they used single quotes all over the place, the single quotes are breaking my google map output..

    I tried wrapping my field ( the_field(‘street_address’) ) in esc_html(), addslashes() and esc_attr() with no luck..

    var contentString<?php echo $post->ID; ?> = '<div id="content">'+
    
          '<div id="siteNotice">'+
    
          '</div>'+
    
         '<h3 id="firstHeading" class="firstHeading"><?php the_title(); ?></h3>'+
    
          '<div id="bodyContent">'+
    
          '<p><b>Address:</b> <br /><?php echo the_field('street_address'); ?>, <?php echo the_field('city'); ?><br /> ' +
    
          '<?php echo the_field('postal_code'); ?><br><br />' +
    
    	  '<b><a href="<?php echo the_field('website'); ?>" target="_blank">Visit website</a></b><br />' +
    
           '<b><span>Distance: <?php echo get_the_distance(null, 1); ?> KM </span></b><br />' +
    	   
    	   '</p>'+
    
          '</div>'+
    
          '</div>';
  • Not really sure about the issue in general, but this is incorrect right off the bat:

    echo the_field

    When you use the_field, it outputs to screen so no need to echo. Maybe that’s what the problem is.

    Try replacing every instance of echo the_field and the_field to simply: get_field().

    Hope this helps.

  • @csaborio is likely correct try echo esc_html(get_field('your-field'))

  • The echo didn’t matter, but this helped

    get_field instead of the_field
