You guys thanks for the encouragement.
I finally solved it with this:

<?php $text= preg_replace("/(\015\012)|(\015)|(\012)/","&nbsp;<br />", $rsDailynewsDetail->Fields('newsfull')); echo $text; ?>

Help came of course from the link Holmes gave.
Thanks.

Yes. Itis with enter key. It will not be possible to pre-determine the length as this field is supposed to be a news field.


I'm lost as to how to go about this as the enter key does not generate chr(13) when saving. I'm really lost.

Holmes directed me to http://us2.php.net/nl2br. I'm currently going thru it. It seems they all exepected an HTML input.

Well, as one of the last posts said, if you are displaying in a web browser, via HTML, you need to insert <br> tags where you want the text to go to the next line. HTML doesn't respond to /r/n pairs. So if that is how the user types them in (with a enter key at the end of lines) you need to replace with <br>'s if there are no EOL's in the original text you need to decide on some arbitrary length and insert <br> at that point.

How are the paragraph breaks represented in the original text? You have have to detect the paragraph breaks and change to a /r/n.

Hello,
Can someone help with this problem I've been trying to solve but don't how to.


I have a field of type longtext that contains text with paragraphs at the time of entry.

But when I display this text content, the paragraphs are not shown. Everything will just appear in one long text with no paragraph break.
