How to add line breaks to block contact info module?

Today I want to show you little trick related to module which displays shop contacts information in your footer. This guide is based on PrestaShop 1.6 but it will work also in 1.5 and older releases of PS engine. So, let me explain what we trying to achieve ;) This tiny module allows to display store informations in footer section, you can fill form (on module configuraiton page) with credentials of your company. As you can see on image below in front office there is no line breaks for address field. In this guide i will show you how easily you can add line breaks to the front office view.

Modification of module template file

In this case we have to modify module template file named blockcontactinfos.tpl. So, please open this module file (if exists, open file from themes directory themes/default-bootstrap/modules/blockcontactinfos/blockcontactinfos.tpl) and instead of original (default) code:

<i class="icon-map-marker"></i>{$blockcontactinfos_company|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}{if $blockcontactinfos_address != ''}, {$blockcontactinfos_address|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}{/if}

use this one:

<i class="icon-map-marker"></i>{$blockcontactinfos_company|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}{if $blockcontactinfos_address != ''}, <br />{$blockcontactinfos_address|nl2br}{/if}


And that's all, your block contact informations will add line breaks exactly as you've got defined in back office:
