I have a rich text field that I don't want wrapped in anything.

I just want a text area field, but I'm not sure how to get a text area without making it rich text, as the only multiline text field is the rich text field.

If it is going to be rich text, I need to be able to remove wrapping tags and control those.

If what you want is a multi-line plain text field, then check the Allow line breaks checkbox for that field.

  • Does a plain text field wrap your text only? Because it doesn't seem to generate <br> tags. Commented May 26, 2015 at 9:29
  • You will want to use twig's nl2br filter to change the newlines (in the text field) to <br> tags Commented Apr 8, 2019 at 16:41
