Switch to MySQLi or PDO and use bound values.

For MySQLi you could use

mysqli_real_escape_string($string); // For procedural style

It's already mentioned in the link you have provided

This extension is deprecated as of PHP 5.5.0, and will be removed in the future. Instead, the MySQLi or PDO_MySQL extension should be used. See also MySQL: choosing an API guide and related FAQ for more information. Alternatives to this function include:


From http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.mysqli-escape-string.php

mysqli_escape_string — Alias of mysqli_real_escape_string()

So both are same.
