How to make a new line in django messages.error


I have a line of my code

messages.error(request, ('ERROR: upload failed. Try again'))

popping up a message in my template

upload failed. Try again

But I want to get a new line after the point, like:

upload failed.
Try again

How do I get that?

I tryed

upload failed.n Try again


upload failed.<br/> Try again


upload failed.{{text|linebreaks}} Try again

but it does not work…

You almost made it. You need to use mark_safe.
In your case, this is what you will have:

from django.utils.safestring import mark_safe

messages.error(request, mark_safe("ERROR: upload failed.<br/>Try again"))

This might not be a perfect solution for your case, but you can call it two times:

messages.error(request, 'ERROR: upload failed.')
messages.error(request, 'Try again')

Instead of one message of two lines, you’ll output two messages perfectly split.
