newline – PHP new line break in emails

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I have the following code:

$message = "Good news! The item# $item_number on which you placed a bid of $ $bid_price is now available for purchase at your bid price.\n
The seller, $bid_user is making this offer.\n
\nItem Title : $title\n

\nAll the best,\n
$bid_user\n
$email\n
";

echo $message;
$htmlContent = $baseClass->email_friend($item_number, $title, $bid_price, $bid_user, $mcat, $message, $email, $VIEWSTATE, $EVENTVALIDATION, $URL);

The problem is that the new line break (\n) is not working.

How to&Answers:

Try \r\n in place of \n

The difference between \n and \r\n

It should be noted that this is applicable to line returns in emails. For other scenarios, please refer to rokjarc’s answer.

Answer:

I know this is an old question but anyway it might help someone.

I tend to use PHP_EOL for this purposes (due to cross-platform compatibility).

echo "line 1".PHP_EOL."line 2".PHP_EOL;

If you’re planning to show the result in a browser then you have to use "<br>".

EDIT: since your exact question is about emails, things are a bit different.
For pure text emails see Brendan Bullen’s accepted answer. For HTML emails
you simply use HTML formatting.

Answer:

Are you building this string using single or double quotes? \r and \n only work with double quotes, as well as embedded variables. For example:

$foo = 'bar';
echo 'Hello \n $foo!';

will output:

Hello \n $foo!

But:

$foo = 'bar';
echo "Hello \n $foo!";

will output:

Hello
bar!

Answer:

If you output to html or an html e-mail you will need to use <br> or <br /> instead of \n.

If it’s just a text e-mail: Are you perhaps using ' instead of "? Although then your values would not be inserted either…

Answer:

you can use "Line1<br>Line2"

Answer:

EDIT: Maybe your class for sending emails has an option for HTML emails and then you can use <br />

1) Double-quotes

$output = "Good news! The item# $item_number  on which you placed a bid of $ $bid_price is now available for purchase at your bid price.\nThe seller, $bid_user is making this offer.\n\nItem Title : $title\n\nAll the best,\n $bid_user\n$email\n";

If you use double-quotes then \n will work (there will be no newline in browser but see the source code in your browser – the \n characters will be replaced for newlines)

2) Single quotes doesn’t have the effect as the double-quotes above:

$output = 'Good news! The item# $item_number  on which you placed a bid of $ $bid_price is now available for purchase at your bid price.\nThe seller, $bid_user is making this offer.\n\nItem Title : $title\n\nAll the best,\n $bid_user\n$email\n';

all characters will be printed as is (even variables!)

3) Line breaks in HTML

$html_output = "Good news! The item# $item_number  on which you placed a bid of <br />$ $bid_price is now available for purchase at your bid price.<br />The seller, $bid_user is making this offer.<br /><br />Item Title : $title<br /><br />All the best,<br /> $bid_user<br />$email<br />";
  • There will be line breaks in your browser and variables will be replaced with their content.

Answer:

if you are outputting the code as html – change /n –>
and do echo $message;

Answer:

When we insert any line break with a programming language the char code for this is “\n”. php does output that but html can’t display that due to htmls line break is
. so easy way to do this job is replacing all the “\n” with “
“. so the code should be

str_replace("\n","<br/>",$str);

after adding this code you wont have to use pre tag for all the output oparation.
