RTFM text formatting problem

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I’ve installed RTFM, following the install instructions by creating a
class, creating a custom text field, and assigning rights. The problem
is that text entered doesn’t seem to print very well. My custom field
is of the Text type. When I enter text like so:


This is a

  1. test of
  2. RTFM text
  3. formatting.

What I see when I view the article is this:


This is a 1. test of 2. RTFM text 3. formatting.


Which makes it hard to read pre-formatted text. Now is something wrong
with my installation, or is this Working As Intended? If so, then I
guess I’ll just stick in a text output filter in the code, so that
carriage returns (\n) are replace with (
\n) and more than one space
is replaced with ( ). It just doesn’t make sense to me that
this is the way that it was intended to work, since any text with any
formatting, even just paragraph breaks, is all jumbled together. Any
insight is appreciated.

Thanks,
Nate

You’re using an “enter many lines” not "enter a big block of text"
custom field.

Hmm… I didn’t think I was. For CustomFields I see these options:

Enter one value
Enter multiple values
Fill in one wikitext area
Fill in multiple wikitext areas
Upload one image
Upload multiple images
Select one value
Select multiple values
Upload one file
Upload multiple files
Fill in one text area

And I selected, “Fill in one text area.” It shows up as type “Text” in
the CustomFields table. Is that not the right type?

Thanks,
Nate
