Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Syntax for text formatting

  1. #1

    Syntax for text formatting

    This is the php that is used in Form2Mail.
    PHP Code:
    $message .= "$var:$val\n"
    If I wanted to make the $var in bold text what would be the correct syntax? I tried this:

    PHP Code:
    $message .= "<b>$var:</b>$val\n"
    But the message ending up being <b>name:</b>=name in the email!

    Also if you have multiple lines in $val, e.g if it was an address - is there a way to format it so that the second line starts under the first as if it were tabbed?

    rather than

    Address: First Line
    Second Line
    Third Line

    Any help greatly appreciated thanks.
