field types

Recommended Posts

well i have made my own forum and for the time being my field type for my post body is "TEXT" and i have noticed that when i press enter it doesnt do it, it doesnt make the text on a new line. and i was wondering if there was a different field type that i could use, that would still allow me to use html to format the text.

when you retrieve data from your database table, use the nl2br() function to get those 'new lines' converted to html <br/> tags.
[code]echo nl2br($message);[/code]

nl2br() [b]always[/b] converts 'newlines' to html br tags. Maybe a peek at some of your code would assist in understanding what this "didnt work" is all about.
