I'm trying to make a sort of CMS for a site, in PHP, and am working on the backend. What I want is when a user goes to edit or create a new item, such as a news item, they will not have to code any HTML, or not a lot. What I'm thinking of is something like this forums post submitting form. One of the main things I want is when a carrage return is entered in the form, it will add one in the submitted HTML code. I looked at the source of the phpBB forum and found a bit where I think may do it, something like stripslashes. The text will then be entered into a MySQL database.
I would love a Rich Edit type form like you would in Word or Hotmail etc but that may be a bit much.
