A textarea should be multiline by default. Can you copy / paste the php code where you throw what's in the textarea into the database?

article Body</b>
<br><b>Allowable Tags:</b><br>&lt;b&gt;, &lt;strong&gt;, &lt;i&gt;, &lt;em&gt;, &lt;u&gt;, &lt;br&gt;, &lt;pre&gt;, &lt;blockquote&gt;, &lt;xmp&gt;, &lt;ol&gt;, &lt;ul&gt;, &lt;li&gt;<br><textarea rows="25" name="body" value="<?echo $body;?>" cols="65" wrap="physical" ><?echo $body?></textarea>

this is the html form


this is the php part where i through into the database

<?
$body=$_POST['body;];
$insert = "INSERT INTO tempsubart ( catageory,title,
summary,
body,
sig,
regdate,
keywords ,name ,email
)
VALUES ('$cat','$title','$summary','$body','$bio','$regdate','$key','$name','$email'
)";
$a=mysql_query($insert) ;?>

Your problem *I THINK* appears to be with the wrap="physical" part of your HTML code. Have you tried ditching it and seeing what happens? Also, your textarea doesn't need a value="" attribute since the value is placed between the <textarea> </textarea> tags.

Also, I'm not sure if this was a mistake copying the code or if it's an actual bug, but you have $body=$_POST['body;]; where you have 'body; instead of 'body'

thanks i tried using striptags started working.thanks for ur help
