hey guys, i have come to a dead end now. when i display the article the content exceeds the width of the div element. how do i tell the form to produce a new line when ever the the user goes on a new line in the text box form?

i have bolded the part where i am telling the program to produce the article content in a pre code.

an example is in the link

http://www.worldofpakistan.net/blog1/displayart.php?art=1&&log=0

the width of the div should be 500 px, and the corners are supposed to be rounded.

you shouldn't need to. HTML will take care of wrapping text.

whoops, i just looked at the page you linked to. get rid of the <pre> tags...if you the content to appear just as it was entered, you'll need to replace the CRLFs (\r\n) with <br/>s.
...I think

The function is called nl2br That will turn all newlines into HTML linebreaks.

Example:

$Input = "Testing
This is on a new line";
echo nl2br($Input);

Output

Testing<br />
This is on a new line

its notworking. i even have removed the <pre></pre> tags. if the user does not press enter every line then this problem happens.

Don't format their input when they enter it. Format it on output. And since you aren't showing the html/css of where it's getting displayed I can't help you fix that part.

this is the file that prints the output.
do i have to do anything to the form because it is just sending all the data as in one line.
i have removed the formating from the input.
