My site is known for a PHP based source page which creates a fresh file on the site. My problem is the fact when I submit something coming from a text area, PHP removes many of the line breaks in advance of adding it into a file. So that as you move description I set up is properly formated, one that viewers read is often a single long section. Is there any tool for fixing that
Another problem is the fact if I put a " on the name of your file, fopen() automatically adds a backslash just before it. (ie Bob’s stuff results in being Bob/’s stuff)
Anyone know why when you can stop either of these from happening
The backslash thing refers to this PHP receive:
$content = stripslashes($content);
You need to use that before everyone save it towards file.
The line breaks is really a little tougher to resolve.
This actually depends on how you edit the content.
I usually do it this way…. but it’s my particular preference.
This is to save your content… textarea from a form.
< php // You have a whole textarea from a form ...
// The name of the form variable is "textarea". $textarea = $_POST'textarea'; // Save the content
$url="page1. txt"; // whatever you name the content text file
$newtext=stripslashes($textarea); // remove the slashes \'
$newtext = str_replace("< ", "", $newtext); // remove any PHP script references
$newtext = str_replace("> ", "", $newtext); // remove any PHP script references
$newtext = nl2br($newtext); // Change all "new line" carriage returns to < br />
// open the text file and save it most.
$fh = fopen($url, 'w') or die("can't open file");
header ("location: list. php"); // return back from where you came >
Now, after you display it pertaining to editing (in a textarea over a form), you need
in order to convert the < br /> to " new lines"…
< php // Your text file
$url = "page1. txt"; // Get page
$data = implode("", file($url)); // Convert all < br> to "new lines".
// There is not a built-in PHP function to do the following, so I call my own function (see below).
$newdata = br2nl($data); // form stuff here ....
// the < br> 's disappear and now become textarea "new lines" or "carriage returns".
echo "< textarea name='textarea' rows='25' cols='80'> $newdata< /textarea> "; // A function to convert < br> and < br /> back to "new lines".
return preg_replace('=< br */> =i', "", $str); >
Of which works great.
