JSON Question

Converting a stringified json structure to PHP array

I'm saving a cookie with json data. Example of echo

$_COOKIE['data']



[{\"date\":1355249777,\"title\":\"junior\"},{\"date\":1355249747,\"title\":\"christopher\"},{\"date\":1355249139,\"title\":\"melfi\"},{\"date\":1355249123,\"title\":\"tony\"},{\"date\":1355248876,\"title\":\"carmela\"},{\"date\":1355248859,\"title\":\"meadow\"}]


The data was pure javascript, then passed by
JSON.stringify
and then stored in the cookie. Now i need to convert it to a php array. I tried a
json_decode
approach but it returns null. Any ideas? Thanks!

Try

json_decode(stripslashes($_COOKIE['data']));
