line breaks in forms

Recommended Posts

Im having trouble getting line breaks to format from a record in MySql that has been input via a form, when it's displayed in the .php page.

 

I know this has something to do with n12br but I have no idea how to code this.

 

I basically need the .php page to format the text exactly the same as entered in the form - i.e. a line break where the user has hit the return key between lines of text.

 

here is the sample code...

 

<?php echo ($row_qMemberTracking['comments']); ?>

got it!

 

after a week of looking and struggling and finally posting, I work it out!

 

n12br should be nl12br

 

<?php echo nl12br($row_qMemberTracking['comments']); ?>

 

sorry for wasting any time - but at least it's here for future ref
