Problem with nl2br

Recommended Posts

I have a text area that I use nl2br on after you fill it out. Now that is just fine for displaying purposes, but if you go back to edit the information in the text area it shows it formatted like it should be but it also includes all the <br />'s. If you don't take out all the line breaks all of then double. How do you take out all the line breaks before displaying it in the text area? Thanks!

[b]$test = str_replace("< br>", "", $text);[/b] will strip them out. (remove the space in the html break)

You should store the raw data from the user, after validating and washing it. Only use nl2br() when displaying the data.
