Coding own WYSIWYG news/admin panel.

Recommended Posts


Ok. So i've coded myself a nice little script to update the news section of my website. Works like a charm. However, the text area that you input the actual content of the news isn't all that smart (As you'd expect, it's just a text area), so all formatting has to be entered manually (Paragraphs, breaks, etc etc).

What I'm trying to do, is now that the news panel is finished, is find a way of making it so any breaks in the content get auto formatted into the MySQL string that will get input into the database.

I hope that makes sense, but as an example, if I were to do:
Todays news is
That I like cheese.

At the moment, it would come out as "Todays news is That I like cheese." For this reason, I'd need to put the suitable <br>'s in. What I want, is something to recognise it's on 2 lines, and auto insert the <br>'s and <p>.

Any ideas?

For new lines, you can use nl2br()
