I see some familiar names....still helping people out, good work ladies.
Anyhow, getting to my question....I had to come back today to get some info on regular expressions so I could change the parameters on a two part search I've been doing with dbman. Found a great explanation from J P Deni from 10 years ago.
Her info was correct and clearly stated as always. My problem is this....I'm trying to using the ^ symbol to tighten up my search, but on the same page where I return my results I use the following for output to the user:
<b>$db_total_hits</b> comment(s) on <b>$search_terms</b>
When I use the ^ it gets returned in the search term string, so the user sees:
3 comment(s) on ^baseball
How do I stop the ^ from showing up? I am using re=on in the original search string and it does seem to be working properly.
