ok basicly usually the text will fit within a given textbox when posted such as on here... but mine is not :S

below i have posted my page where its displayed... and after that the textbox where its added,,,, can any 1 see a reason why the text is just going in a streight line and not starting a new line when it runs out of space?

the output is  via ?php

   $message=$getreplies3['post'];

   $message= BBCode($message);
   $id2=$getreplies3['postid'];

   ?>
        <?php echo $message?>
<td height="168" valign='top'><div align="center"><?php echo $getreplies3['author'];?><?php $result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM useronline WHERE(user='".$getreplies3['author']."')");
while($row = mysql_fetch_array( $result )) {
 
$last_active = time() - $row['timestamp'];
}
 
if($last_active < 300) {
 
   echo '<img src="http://www.runningprofiles.com/images/useron.gif" width="12" height="11" />';
   
}

{  echo '<img src="http://www.runningprofiles.com/images/useroff.gif" width="12" height="11" />'; }
?></div>
  <p align="center">

Try adding this method:
function br2nl($string)
{
    return preg_replace('/\<br(\s*)?\/?\>/i', "\n", $string);
}
And use it like: echo br2nl($array['post']);
A textarea needs newlines (\n) for a new line.

To answer the FIRST question -- you have put a DIV UNDER A table TD cell.  That is a real NO-NO.

Either remove the DIV and let the table do its thing, which is to wrap text normally as you expect, or else if you MUST keep the DIV for some unknown reason, then remove the entire table structure.  You cannot put a DIV under a TD in a table without generating exactly this kind of problem -- it is bad coding practice.
