# Problem with getParam

Hello i have problem with getParam i cant get value from parameter if put this special caracter like this ’ \ ’ .

I post with this value “user\test”
\$request->getParam(‘value’); value show to me like this (user test)
Can help me how to change special character?

`\` is the escape character. But you can escape the escape character! So just type it twice every time that you need it (ie `\\`). Even better, avoid using it because it creates confusion and a bit of a mess!

Thanks Antnee
Can make function in Slimframework on logic where get the post request.
Example if user post value = “test\user” the function can replace value “test\user” ?
