Hey there!
Is there any function similar to mysql_real_escape_string in CI?
Will I have to worry about this when using CI forms and DB insert functions?
Thks!

CI's built-in SQL helper/class and ActiveRecord all automatically handle escaping special characters for you, you don't have to worry about doing it manually. It's a really nice time-saver, one less thing to worry about.

You should still do basic data sanitizing using form validation and common sense, but you don't have to worry about escaping special chars.
