Hello,

i hope that someone is her who can help me by a little question :)

I made a Textarea in a php document. This works fine, and i write an echo like this:

echo “ ”;

echo “Hello her is themeforest <
br> where are you?”;

echo “ ”;

My Problem is now that the <
br> tag has no effect, its also written in the Textarea.

My Question is, how can i set the textarea so that the <
br> Tag has an effect like in a Html site?

Thank You!!!

Hello,

Think you may need to use \r\n if you’re on a Windows Server

echo "<textarea>first line\r\nsecond line</textarea>";
