$string = preg_replace('/m[^a-z]*y[^a-z]*s[^a-z]*p[^a-z]*a[^a-z]*c[^a-z]*e/i', 'test', $string);

//this filters out the work myspace with any thing in between the letters I want to //modify it to also match when a user uses the @ sign in replace of the a in myspace.

Ereg Replace Or Preg Replace

I have HTML content that I want to do a search and replace of urls. If the content contains an <a href="" I want it to take the content and append an id to the end. For example:

<p>content here <a href="">link</a></p>

would change to:

<p>content here <a href="">link</a></p>


<p>content here <a href="">link</a></p>

would change to:

<p>content here <a href="">link</a></p>

Basically I just want to search for hrefs and add a tracking on the end.

Preg Replace And URLs

Hi, I'm having some problems with my URL-code, which automatically turns adressess into urls.

Problems is that when people type "something.something else" that's also turned into an url.

So what I'd like to do is change the below expression to only turn it into urls when you type either "www" in front ( or when you use "http://" (,

$text_s = preg_replace("/(?<=^¶s)((https?¶ftps?)://)?(([-_a-zA-Z0-9]+.)+)([a-zA-Z0-9]{2,6})(/[^][s]*)?(?=s¶$)/e","'$1'!=''? '<a href="$1$3$5$6" target="_blank">$1$3$5$6</a>':'<a href="http://$3$5$6" target="_blank">$3$5$6</a>'",$text_s);

Preg Replace With Variables

I have a loop that loops through and sets $q to certian tags in an HTML documet such as body UL etc etc. It also sets $a to a list of styles for that tag. There are no <> in the $q variable. What I need to do is for each loop is change.

<BODY> into <BODY style="color: #000000;" > etc etc

I was going to do for each loop something like

$templatein = preg_replace('/<$q/','<$q style="$a"',$templatein);

just can't seem to get it to work. Should be pretty str8 forward. I'm just new to PCRE.

Regexp/preg Replace

Im trying to run a preg_replace for replacing some things in the contents of a retrieved webpage. For example, im using the snip below to strip out all javascripts within the content

preg_replace("/<script[^>]*?>.*</script*>/is", "", $content);

The problem with dat however is that, if there happens to be more than 2 script tags within the content, e.g,

some js codes
some content here, this should be omited
another js codes

the match matches from the begining script to the end script, swallowing allong "some content here". The idea is to simply replace contents within each individual script tags.

Using Variables In Preg Replace

I need to replace a chunk of html code in 100 odd pages for a project. So I have written a php script that opens the files, does a preg_replace to cut the code I don't want then save the file (and loop over the rest).

However, I am having trouble with the preg_replace. This works:

$new_contents = preg_replace ("/$replace1(.*)</td>/", "cut out", $contents);

Where $replace1 is the beginning part of the html I want to cut.

But, I want to specify the second part and not just use </td>. So I thought it would be:

$new_contents = preg_replace ("/$replace1(.*)$replace2/", "cut out", $contents);

But this doesn't work. Could someone check my syntax, please? Or is it even possible to have two variables in the expression?

Regex - Allow Dot In Preg _ Replace?

I'm using The perfect PHP clean url generator to clean some file names with an upload script (as well as to clean my permalinks elsewhere). How might I modify it to allow a . if the function looks like this:

function toAscii($str, $replace=array(), $delimiter='-', $exception = '') {
if( !empty($replace) ) {
$str = str_replace((array)$replace, ' ', $str);
$clean = iconv('UTF-8', 'ASCII//TRANSLIT', $str);

Bolding Keywords With Preg Replace

Im setting up a search engine for a content site. It works find, but i still need the keywords to be BOLD on the search results.

For example, if i search for "dog" and one of the results is:

* Dog contest winner
Last friday an Akita dog won the dog contest...

The result SHOULD come up as:

* Dog contest winner
Last friday an Akita (STRONG)dog(/STRONG) won the dog contest...

--I dont quite get the reg.expressions... but i know that this could be accomplished with preg_replace.
