I am working on modifying a php form step by step that was generated by a form creator. I have two separate input checkboxes. I figured out how to use implode() to insert everything into one column in the mysql database. All of the data is inserting correctly. I have an email that sends a notice to me that the form has been filled out. Since I inserted the implode() statement, it runs together a couple of the values on my email. I was wondering what I could do to fix this. For example, my email reads

If yes, what position: Acct
Positions interested in: TicketSeller, TicketTaker, Traffic Position interested in but not listed: Usher Date available to start work at the Fair: 09/10/09 Days available to work: m-f Hours available to work: 8-5
Employer: ksf

There should be a line break beginning with "Position interested in but not ".  I wondered if the comma separated values have anything to do with it. The coding for the $message variable is listed below.

Any  help is appreciated. Please let me know if you need to see more of the coding.
$message="First name: ".$FirstName."
Last name: ".$LastName."
Street: ".$Street."
City: ".$City."
State: ".$State."
Zip code: ".$ZipCode."

I don't think the implode() function has done anything to your message.  I think you simply need to add line breaks, as it won't recognize the carriage returns in your code as breaks.


$message="First name: ".$FirstName."\n
Last name: ".$LastName."\n
Street: ".$Street."\n
City: ".$City."\n
State: ".$State."\n
Zip code: ".$ZipCode."\n";
