I have 2 RSS readers ... Simple Pie and the vBulletin RSS Reader that posts to a forum. Both, when running in PHP5, have a tendancy to strip the "<" and ">" tags from the RSS. When I run the scripts in PHP4, everything is OK! I know the scripts do work on PHP5, I just can't seem to find what in PHP 5, in my php.ini or otherwise, that would cause all the "<" and ">" to be stripped from the posts ... the result, of course, if a bunch of text then br/br/ and broken links like a href= So, i'm stumped! I'm tempted to use a default php.ini for php5 (if I can find one) and start from scratch Any ideas would be appreciated!
