In one part of my site I am displaying custom field data like this:

global $wp_query;
$postid = $wp_query->post->ID;
echo get_post_meta($postid, 'info', true);

This works ok but it strips any paragraph breaks out and displays it all as one big block which makes it hard to read.

So how do I make it respect the paragraph breaks?

many thanks in advance!

this obviously depends on the content of your 'info' custom field; generally, you could try:

echo apply_filters('the_content', get_post_meta($postid, 'info', true));
