I'm trying to remove the \r\n from the string that I inserted to textbox field (from textarea element) into MySQL.

No I cannot remove it displaying again from MySQL to HTML. There is so many solution out there but nothing works.

I tried with:

$orderNotes = str_replace("\r\n",' ', $orderRecord['notes']);
$orderNotes = trim(preg_replace( '/\s+/', ' ', trim($orderRecord['notes'])));
$orderNotes = str_replace(array("\r\n", "\r", "\n"), "", $orderRecord['notes']);
$orderNotes = trim(preg_replace('/\s\s+/', ' ', $orderRecord['notes']));

but my string is continue to echo out with \r\n. Nothing works....!

How can I remove this (or change to <br/>) or better how can I insert to MySQL without it?

Please advise,

PS: I found a solution, the only thing that works:

$orderNotes = str_ireplace(array("\r\n",'\r\n'),'<br />', $orderRecord['notes']);


Did you test with nl2br?

$orderNotes = nl2br($orderRecord['notes']);




Hi Djulia,

Thanks for your suggestion! Yes, I tried it but with no luck, only the below code worked in my case:

$orderNotes = str_ireplace(array("\r\n",'\r\n'),'<br />', $orderRecord['notes']);

Any hint how can I remove the newline \r\n that in the $POST from textarea (or change to <br/>) before inserting to MySQL?

Dear iTools team,

I didn't getting notification emails from the forum anymore. How can I opt-in again?


Thank you Djulia for your tips and support on this, sorry for not getting back to you sooner (still not getting forum email notifications).

My problem is when I try to output from MySQL cmsb textbox field where previously I stored from textarea with \r\n

Example (in Greek): Θέλω για ύφασμα το / 644c, (πουά μπλε)\r\nΌπως λέω σε όλες τις εκτυπωσεις

In my case the str_ireplace worked like I posted before.

Thank you again,
