    EDIT: It’s alright – I got it sorted!

    Hey, y’all.

    I’m currently in work developing a small news system for a client of their’s, and I’ve been getting along well until I came across converting a value fetched from the database, using a while() loop. Basically, I use the while loop to select the content from the database, and then I can print the page. Unfortunately, this is filled with unnecessary code that the reader doesn’t need to see (i.e. ‘nn’).

    So, I attempted to use str_replace(); to replace ‘nn’ with line-breaks… but to no avail. And I’m still pretty much struggling on this, and any help on it would be great.


    P.S. Here’s a code snippet:

    $pattern = "nn";

    $replacement = "

    $string = $result;

    print str_replace($pattern, $replacement, $string);
