First of all, I'm new to PHP, and also to Daniweb.
I've been looking everywhere for some PHP code to skip to the next line every time my string ($description) has a period in it. So here's an example of what I want to achieve:

The car is green. The tree is yellow
What I want it to be:
The car is green.
The tree is yellow.

Thanks in advance!

You can use the str_replace function to replace each occurence of "." in $description with ".\n", i.e. to insert a newline (\n) after each period. If you want to display your string as HTML, you should use "<br>" instead of (or in addition to) "\n".

$description=str_replace('.','.<br/>', $description);

did the job.
