newlines not showing up when info previously stored in DB is displayed on page


Recommended Posts

the news field in my database is a text type


what i wish to know is how to have text that has line breaks within the text

still show with these line breaks when i grab the data again to show it in the page it is ment for.


at the moment all the text seems to just continue on one long line and breaks up when the end of the page is reached.

$update = mysql_query("UPDATE `news` SET `news` = '" . $_POST['news'] . "'");
} else {
$news = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `news`");
<textarea name="news" cols="80" rows="10"><?=@mysql_result($news, 0, 'news');?></textarea><br>
<input name="submit" type="submit" value="submit">


display page

<?=@mysql_result($mpsurgeries_news, 0, "mpsurgeries_news");?>
