I have a RSS reader on a web-page and the RSS it receives have links that contain "&" sign in them. For the page to be valid it needs to be changed to "&". I know this sounds stupid and unnecessary but I want to fix them.

Attached to this post is the PHP I use to get the RSS feed. Can someone help me modify it so i can have it change the "&" to "&"?

You can use PHP's str_replace.

$filtered_link=str_replace('&','&',$link_string);
