spacing

Recommended Posts

Hey.

What i'm trying to do is create a post with variables and then with an external BB to use a query to create a new post/topic.

I have that all down pat, i can get the topic/post made in the BB, but the spacing is all of.  So i was just wondering, what code is equivilant to an HTML break, but maybe in ACSI like \p or \a or something?

Thanks. Hopefully someone know's what i mean lol.

Here are some other ascii and hex characters that you may want.

[quote]" " (ASCII 32 (0x20)), an ordinary space.
"\t" (ASCII 9 (0x09)), a tab.
"\n" (ASCII 10 (0x0A)), a new line (line feed).
"\r" (ASCII 13 (0x0D)), a carriage return. [/quote]

You can also wrap your text in <pre> tags to have the formatting remain the same.

Your starting post suggests your formatting using html paragraph elements, so your probably better off storing chunks of html. A lot easier, no fuss no muss. Just be carefull what you insert, and always make sure what you display comes out of the db.

If you haven't done so already, study [url=http://www.securiteam.com/securityreviews/5DP0N1P76E.html]SQL injection exploits[/url], otherwise storing html can be a security risk. SQL injection is always a risk anyways, so you need to have studied it.
