for my website, I want a simple BB code system. Nothing special--just hyperlinks and images will be fine for now.
I'm not good with RegExp. Period. But if someone could show me an example, I may be able to grasp it to clone it into different tags.
Your help is very appreciated!
The user asked for something simple, so I gave him something simple.
$input = "[link=http://www.google.com]test[/link]"; $replacement = preg_replace('/\[link=(.*?)\](.*?)\[\/link\]/', '<a href="$1">$2</a>', $input);
/\[link=(.*?)\](.*?)\[\/link\]/ is the regex,
<a href="$1">$2</a> is the format,
$input is the input/data, and
$replacement is the return.
