PHP Question

replace different parts of string with php

I have a bit of php code that posts the value of a form field like this:

str_replace("www.", "", $_POST['billing_myfield12'])


This php code excludes the www part if the user entered it. I would like to exclude http and https aswell if this is entered as a value.

I tried doing something like this, but it didn't work:

str_replace("www."&&"http://", "", $_POST['billing_myfield12'])


any ideas on how to exlude multiple parts

Answer

You can do this:

$strToRemove= array("www","http","blabla");
$newStr = str_replace($strToRemove, "", $_POST['billing_myfield12']);

you put them in an array and then fed it to the str_replace function's first parameter.
