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.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: html email generated by php -- having weird breaks

    html email generated by php -- having weird breaks

    I'm generating an html with php ...

    here's what the raw source of part of one of the emails :


    occasionally, weird breaks get thrown in and will screw things up--- as in this instance, it breaks the image cause it puts a break in its url (see orange arrow).

    Anyone know how to prevent this?

    Shouldn't break at all, that's just a line break from the word-wrap. Are you sure the image you're pulling actually exists?

    Don't PM me your CSS, xHTML, JS or PHP questions. I will not reply to ANY IE6 questions.

    Yup, the same script can be called in a "View online" version - where it loads the same html in the browser - and everything works. So I know all the images are there.

    Things seem to be getting screwed up by the word-wraps...Happens in different places depending on how many characters its readying.

    Not sure how much of the generated content you have control over but just stick in line breaks after the blocks you'd like to break. Here's an example

    PHP Code:
    //Instead of this:
    echo "<div>Holler for a dollar</div>";

    //Try this:
    echo "<div>Holler for a dollar</div>\r\t"
    That will put a line break in the actual source but won't affect the html code what-so-ever. Not really sure if it'll fix your problem as I don't know enough about it, but it'll certainly make your html more legible.
