Smarty old and smarty new throws problem
  • PHP Fatal error:  Cannot redeclare smarty_function_escape_special_chars() (previously declared in /srv/www/htdocs/magyarszo4/www/include/smarty/plugins/shared.escape_special_chars.php:19) in /srv/www/htdocs/magyarszo4/www/library/smarty3/plugins/shared.escape_special_chars.php on line 27

    Why need two version of smarty? The problem sometimes come where use forms like search or poll.

    I have solved problem at this time with

    function smarty_function_escape_special_chars($string)
        if(!is_array($string)) {
            $string = preg_replace('!&(#?\w+);!', '%%%SMARTY_START%%%\\1%%%SMARTY_END%%%', $string);
            $string = htmlspecialchars($string);
            $string = str_replace(array('%%%SMARTY_START%%%','%%%SMARTY_END%%%'), array('&',';'), $string);
        return $string;

  • used in forms.
