I've looked at several solutions from various search engines, but I haven't found one that has worked just yet. I have a textarea that is displaying a php variable in it. Instead of linebreaks, it simple shows <br />'s, everywhere. I tried replacing them with /n's and various other things, but I haven't had any luck.

Is there an easy solution? This one little issue is holding me back tremendously.

Thank you in advance,

Resentful

My bad. That's what I used. I just typed it wrong. When I did that, it did the line breaks, but the <br />'s stayed.

I fixed it myself.

Thank you for the help.

No problem, just out of curiousity (and for my future reference) what did you have to do?
