Hi,

Thanks for Your help.

I need the code to be able to add a <p> tag at the beginning of each line when I enter text into a form.

Example:

I paste the following into a form:

Curabitur eget ligula. Vivamus iaculis euismod felis. In magna. Quisque eu sapien. Suspendisse
accumsan. Curabitur eros felis, adipiscing quis, suscipit in, congue eget, enim. Nulla consectetuer
ante condimentum velit. Etiam commodo magna ac nulla. Sed ornare. Sed vulputate lacinia urna.
Etiam nec dui.

Output is:
<p>Curabitur eget ligula. Vivamus iaculis euismod felis. In magna. Quisque eu sapien. Suspendisse
<p>accumsan. Curabitur eros felis, adipiscing quis, suscipit in, congue eget, enim. Nulla consectetuer
<p>ante condimentum velit. Etiam commodo magna ac nulla. Sed ornare. Sed vulputate lacinia urna.
<p>Etiam nec dui.

Thank You VERY VERY Much for Your Help!

:)

try this, where text is your var.

$text = preg_replace('/^(.)/sim', '<p>\\1', $text);
