Retrieve Text Formatting


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a form that puts data inside a database. How come when I entered information on new lines within the "Description" textbox, the data saved does not include the new line?




Today is Wednesday.


Tomorrow  is Thursday


gets stored as


Today is Wednesday.Tomorrow  is Thursday


How do I restore the new lines/paragraphs?



<form action="2.php" method="post">
Title: <input type="text" name="title" />
  <textarea name="description"></textarea>
<input type="submit" />



mysql_select_db("database", $con);

$sql="INSERT INTO jobs (title, description)

if (!mysql_query($sql,$con))
  die('Error: ' . mysql_error());
echo "1 record added";
