I am using safecracker for users to create and edit content. When the entry is set to a status I have named "validated" the users can't edit the entry anymore and it uses a different template.
My issue is with a textarea and formatting. When I have the formatting for the text field as "none", the textarea in the safecracker edit field returns the content with the right returns. When the entry gets validated it comes out as one huge paragraph because there are no
<p> tags or
<br> tags. When I set it to "auto
<br>" or "xhtml" I get the tags that I need for the "validated" page, but these tags show up in safecracker edit field.
Is there a way to override how a field is formatted from the template so my edit template would not add
<br> tags to the field but the "validated" template would?
I don't want richtext, I just want a
<br> tag for a return but I don't want the user to see tags on the edit page. This text field is in Matrix if that makes any difference.
