    very awesome

    It shows that because the the_content() function outputs the content after it’s been processed and filtered. What you want to do is just this:

    <textarea><?php echo $post->post_content; ?></textarea>

    I have to ask the question of why you don’t want to show HTML and would rather have it be inside a textarea?



    very awesome

    It’s not that strange. I’ve done it before when I’ve wanted the original text for editing somewhere outside of the “standard” system. Granted, it’s not a common use, but it’s not completely uncommon.

    catacaustic thanks allot dear thanksssssssssssssssssss alooot. You don’t know you solve how much big problem for me.. because I don’t know about php thanks aloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooot… 🙂

    catacaustic I am here back. Thanks your first response now I am going to bold the text in post and adding the <!—more—> tag in post.. when I add these post then that is showing in Text Area….
