    input text and texarea value problem

    Hello all,

    I have a little problem with input field and textarea.

    This is working, notice the value="{$output_url}"
    Code:
    <input name="newurl" type="text"  value="{$output_url}" onkeyup=limiter() {literal}onfocus="if (typeof(document.layers) == 'undefined' || typeof(textarea_selected) == 'undefined') {textarea_selected = 1; document.newurlform.elements['newurl'].select();}" {="{" literal}="literal}" />
    When I try to accomplish the same with a texarea, the area doesn't show the output of the URl (value="{$output_url}")

    Code:
    <textarea name="newurl" value="{$output_url}" onkeyup=limiter() {literal}onfocus="if (typeof(document.layers) == 'undefined' || typeof(textarea_selected) == 'undefined') {textarea_selected = 1; document.newurlform.elements['newurl'].select();}" {="{" literal}="literal}" /></textarea>
    It doesn't show anything in the textarea.

    Any help would be great!

    <textarea> has no value attribute and you must use the value in between the opeing an closing tags, like
    Code:
    <textarea>Value goes here</textarea>

    Great, but now it doesn't show the real output, only litterly the words {$output_url} , but not the true value.

    Code:
    <textarea name="newurl" cols="50" rows="4" wrap="physical" onkeyup="limiter()" {literal}onfocus="if (typeof(document.layers) == 'undefined' || typeof(textarea_selected) == 'undefined') {textarea_selected = 1; document.newurlform.elements['newurl'].select();}" {="{" literal}="literal}">{$output_url}</textarea>
    Can you tell me why?

    Are you echoing it using PHP or using any other templates?
