SQLite - show html from entry


I have an entry in my database that has line breaks. I want those line breaks to actually appear as line breaks when the entry is displayed.

So, I did something like:

<%= string_var.sub("\n","<br>":slight_smile: %>

It partially works. It actually replaces the < with &lt and the > symbol with &gt. Is there a work around this?

Thank you, Eric

What version of Rails are you running?

Rails 3 changed the default behavior of printing raw html and the use of the “h” method.
