Problem with form submission: special chars get converted - El Forum - 07-16-2012

[eluser]Zero-10[/eluser]
Hi everyone, I'm trying to make a fairly basic form submission but to post something as simple as blog posts. The problem is, any special character gets automatically converted so if you type a url or add quotes it'll add the ASCII for it.

It would be nice if I could just convert line breaks into actual line breaks and not have to worry about displaying certain characters. Where can I start to learn how to do this properly? Thank you!
