How To Feed Out The Text With Carriage Returns In A <textarea>?

Jan 16, 2001

I get input from a <textarea>. If my visitor adds carriage returns, the script changes them into <br>'s before reading the input into a text file. But when I read the text file back into the <textarea> (so that my visitor can make revisions to the original without having to type the whole thing over), it's one long line--no carriage returns. Anybody know how to feed out the text with carriage returns in a <textarea>? What do I change the <br>'s back into? n doesn't work. rn doesn't work. ?

Carriage Returns

Jun 28, 2005

I've written a small questionnaire in PHP. Several questions are to be completed in a text box. All data enters ok, but when I retrive the results with the following:

$query = 'SELECT * INTO OUTFILE "C:inetpubintranet
esults'.$qnamed.''.$filenamedate.'.csv" fields terminated by "," lines terminated by "
" FROM '.$qnamed.''

I encounter a problem. If the user completing the questionnaire has started a new line in the text box, then the file starts a new line every time a user did. Since I want to put this straight into excel (hence the .csv) it completly destroys the structure. I have tried to adding $question1 = trim($question1); when they are completing the questionnaire but it hasn't helped.

Scanning For Carriage Returns?

Sep 8, 2009

What I am trying to do is take a list that is typed into a text box and turn it into an unordered HTML list on output. I think I can use a foreach loop to setup the <LI> part of the list, but I am not sure how to have it scan the string for carriage returns and have it repeat the loop using those. I already have it setup to accept the data from a text box, but not sure how to proceed beyond that.

Removing Carriage Returns In SQL?

Oct 20, 2009

I have a WYSIWYG editor for a PHP form that I want to store the data in a MSSQL database. When I save the data, it seems it likes to add carriage returns when storing the data in the database. WHen I go in to view the data the second time around using the WYSIWYG the page encounters a problem (I have debugged and figured it is because of the carriage returns).

So I would like to have my submit.php page take the value of the POST['solution'] and remove any carriage returns there may be, before submitting the data into the SQL database.

I have found SQL carriage returns are the ascii characters char(13) and char(10), but it seems that I can not get rid of them.

Remove Carriage Returns From Output Of String?

Jun 17, 2010

I am using wordpress as a CMS and trying to allow user fields to be input to populate the info windows in a Google Map script. I am using this to select the id and pull in the content from a custom field.

It works fine unless there is any html in the custom-field which breaks the script.
I looked at htmlspcialchar and htmlentities but rather than strip everything out I would like to have it escaped so it still works and the html is intact. Any suggestions? I am pretty new to PHP and would really appreciate any pointers.

After a while I am still unable to find a great solution for this. TheDeadMedic suggested I use esc_js

but that printed all of the actual html code instead of rendering it. Something else I tried was to use the trim function.. this is where I am at now where it works as long as no in the output. The $snip string, mapExcerpt field is where the returns are coming from:

<?php $post_id = 207; // Wordpress Post ID
$my_post = get_post($post_id);
$mapTitle = $my_post->post_title;
$mapIMG = get_post_meta($post_id, 'mapImage', true);

Carriage Returns Or Line Breaks In Html?

Apr 1, 2010

Use nl2br()when displaying text that has carriage returns or line breaks in html, but when pulling from the DB and inserting the text into a textarea tag, the breaks and returns aren't being displayed.I know they're there, as I've not replaced them in any form.The only thing I worry about is that I have stripslashes() taking the escape character out, and it may be destroying the breaks.But it never displays an extra 'n' character at the end of what should be the paragraphs.Quote:This is some sample text and here comes a couple line breaks.This is some sample text.And here comes a couple line breaks.

Strip Tags - Keep The Carriage Returns/newlines

Aug 28, 2007

I am trying to take external content (text description) that could either be raw text, or HTML content - and assign it to a field that will be displayed on my website.

Since I want to present the data on my website, I want to strip the majaority of HTML tags, that control is font, colour, size, underlines etc.

I know that PHP provides strip_tags for this purpose.  The thing is, I want it to keep the carriage returns/newlines, and if possible bullet points - does anyone know how I can achieve this?

Print Variable From Form With Carriage Returns?

Mar 15, 2010

I'm sure there's a simple answer to this but I'm just stuck on it... I have a text box in an html form that the user will type several lines similar to this (text and associated number) into:

supraspinatus sprain-strain, 840.6
shoulder sprain-strain, 840.9

and when I pass the info to be processed via POST to my php, the variable that represents what was typed in is put all together and prints out like this:

supraspinatus sprain-strain, 840.6 shoulder sprain-strain, 840.9

How can I get it to print out as it was entered?

How To Remove (replace) Carriage Returns In Output Code..

Aug 6, 2007

Let's say I have a line of code in a MySQL table as following:

This is some text in a database table with a carriage
return in the middle of it!

Now, if I grab that code and echo it, the text will show up in the browser with no line break, which is fine. HOWEVER, if you look at the page source for that code, there is still the carriage return in the middle of the line. My question is, how can I remove that carriage return from the text in the source code.

Returns / New Lines In Textarea Text?

Sep 23, 2010

I have a form that is processed using PHP (post method) and there is a textarea people will enter text into.
After processing, the text is displayed to the user. However, if the user did a Carriage Return (i.e. hit Enter) when they originally entered the text, that text does NOT show on a new line when displayed later.

For example, if they type this into the text area...

"Hello there (they hit Enter here)
How are you (they hit Enter here)
Good I hope"

It will display like this, all on one line:

"Hello there How are you Good I hope"

In other words, it doesn't seem to remember that Enter was hit.

Is there some way to "preserve" the fact that someone hit the "Enter" key, so that when text is displayed later, it will show the text on a new line if the user in fact hit "Enter" when originally typing it.

I am probably not using the right terms in the right spots (i.e. newline, carriage return, enter, etc) but I think you get the picture

Best SEO Method To Translate A Website Page With Google Translate

Oct 18, 2009

So must of us have a lot of content on our sites in one language or another. Since we are web professionals we spent all that time we could have been learning human languages - instead learning computer languages. So we need someway to translate our content.

Google provides a translation service (among others) and so given their massive empire I am confident that they do (or shortly will) have the best translation service. With that in mind, what is the best way to use it? We could just be lazy and use the little widget that they provide - but we would lose all the content and SEO juice because google would rewrite the links to point to "".

So my question is - how we can use this service while retaining the translated content on our site? One method would be to use the Google AJAX API to load the content inline when the wants it. But since it is powered by JS (like jQuery)- Search Engines won't benefit from this. Another method would be to use a server side language (like PHP) to scrap the content from the google translate page. But I'm not sure this is 100% legal. Finally, I was wondering about using mod_rewrite to fetch the page. But again, I don't think this would benefit our site.


All you would need to do is add a a couple links on your pages with the variables appended to the end of what ever URL is in the link and your set. //View file View Page in <a href="<?php print $uri_string; ?>-de">German</a>.....

Subquery Returns NULL - Yet Returns Proper Value On Localhost

Dec 30, 2009

Couldn't get into my old account so my first post on my new account Edit: I guess I got into the old account again automatically by email address, If got a query which works like a charm on my localhost but on the live server it won't work as nice

series.sID AS sID,
series.description AS seriename,
(SELECT sum(images.price) FROM images WHERE images.sID = 1) AS seriestotal,
GROUP_CONCAT(DISTINCT themes.description ORDER BY themes.description ASC SEPARATOR ', ') AS themes,

Now on my localhost it returns the sum of all price fields, on the live server it returns NULL as seriestotal but no further errors or anyting. The site and database on my live server are an exact copy of my local site and database. My local MYSQL version is 5.0.67 On the live server it's 4.1.10 Yet I thought subqueries are support from 4.1 onwards... I've tested another simple query with a subquery on the live server and that works.
