Paragraph Break

Nov 6, 2005

I have searched through this forum but I've drawn a blank. What I want to do seems simple enough. I want users who fill in a text area to be able to include a new paragraph break.

I have used HTMLSpecialChars for security reasons, and now, paragraph breaks disappear.
I have in mind the posibility of asking users to enter something like --P-- and then have my script change that part of the string into <p>.

Html - Remove Wrapping Paragraph But Only If It's The Only Paragraph?

May 11, 2011

How to remove the (in this case, useless) wrapping paragraph in cases like this:

<p>Only paragraph</p>

But to keep the string as it is when there is more than one paragraph involved:

<p>Paragraph 1</p>
<p>Paragraph 2</p>

preg_replace would probably do the trick in here but only if you can handle regexps.. :/

First 500 Words Of Paragraph

Feb 14, 2005

If you have your own blog, you may notice this feature:

you write a long article and add it to your blog. In your blog homepage visitors can see a summary of this article plus a "Read More" link. The summary is the first, let say, 500 words of your article.

It's a piece of cake if you use plain text only, however, you've already used HTML tags like <img>, <p>, <ul>, <li>, <a href>.... So the question is, how to remove some tags (e.g.<img>) and get the first 500 words without breaking other tags (<ul>. <li> and <anchor>)

Separating First Paragraph From Others?

Sep 10, 2010

Let's say, that I have the following source output:

<p>This is first paragraph</p>
<p>This is second paragraph</p>
<p>This is third paragraph</p>

What I want to achieve is... I want to split them, first paragraph goes into one variable, others into other. Like:

$first = "<p>This is first paragraph</p>";
$next = "<p>This is second paragraph</p><p>This is third paragraph</p>";

Because those are generated by TinyMCE and user input, I can never know when user will add <br /> or other tags, which will cause TinyMCE to generate a new code-break . Therefore, all the solutuons which split them by looking for won't work this time.

Extracting A Paragraph?

May 26, 2011

I have this very poorly written code which will extract the first paragraph after a specified marker. I would like to see a better written code snippert which will do the same thing, perhaps using a regExp (which I do not understand all that well).Known parameters:

1) the paragraph will start after a string of dashes
2) there will be a hard return after the string of dashes
3) each paragraph will end with a hard return which you may identify with chr(10).

The following code works, but surely there is a better way to write this:

Paragraph Formatting

Jul 9, 2007

we have some paragraphs that have <BR>,<P> buried in them and want to modify them so that <BR> stars a new line and <P> begins a new paragraph. We tried
the below:

$NOTE = str_replace("<P>","n
$NOTE = str_replace("<BR>","

It looks like the  1st replace does not work and the second one does. We  are outputting the  paragraphs to  a PDF  generatorn and it needs a text file  with proper  line and paragraph codes.

Find Letters In Paragraph?

Oct 5, 2010

Let's say I have this sentence. "The dog took the kid's bone." Well using PHP, can I find specific letters inside that sentence (if any at all) that I specify? So for example, I want to find the letters g, t, h, and e. Then the sentence would appear like:

The do g -- t ook t h e kid's bon e. (sorry about formatting...) See how certain letters are bolded (highlight in a way). They are from the g,t,h, and e combo I wanted. Is there a way to do this in PHP?

Also, I forgot to mention that once a letter is found... it cannot be bolded again. So if I was looking for a t* and the letter t appeared more than once... it would ONLY highlight ONE (the first) t... UNLESS I specify to find more than one t.

Dom Element Of Paragraph's Text?

Dec 19, 2010

I need to get the text of a paragraph. Simple, right?! Here's the code.


It works perfectly, grabs the class of every div on the page and echoes it out. But what I really need to do is find all <p> tags - every one on the page - and echo the text that is in between the <p>! I have a feeling it's simple but I just can't figure it out. edit All it took was the following:

$doc = new DOMDocument();
$node = $doc->getElementsByTagName('p')->item(3);
echo $node->textContent."

What you really want is getElementsByName and then once you have the node, you textContent for the win.

Highlight Keywords In A Paragraph?

Nov 2, 2010

I need to highlight a keyword in a paragraph, as google does in its search results. Let's assume that I have a MySQL db with blog posts. When a user searches for a certain keyword I wish to return the posts which contain those keywords, but to show only parts of the posts (the paragraph which contain the searched keyword) and to highlight those keywords.

My plan is this:

find the post id which has the searched keyword in it's content; read the content of that post again and put each word in a fixed buffer array (50 words) until I find the keyword.

Strip Out Urls In A Paragraph Of Text

Jan 22, 2007

I need to strip out urls in a paragraph of text. The paragraph comes to my code from a db call, so it is dynamic. I can get the first url out but not all of them if there is more than one. I was hoping someone has tackled this and can help me out.

I have $deptDesc coming in from the db.

$deptDesc = preg_replace('/<a href=.*>/U', '',$deptDesc);
$deptDesc = preg_replace('/</a>/', '',$deptDesc);

I added the 'U' for non-greedy but it only seems to get the first url if there is more than one.

Text Weighted To Last Line Of Paragraph?

Mar 24, 2011

An unusual one this, and a toughie to explain eloquently! I'm trying to force the first line of a paragraph to have the least number of characters where under normal circumstances it would be the last. that probably didn't make much sense, so I'll use an example.

Text usally formats like this:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing
elit. Curabitur mollis lorem sit amet nisl
scelerisque mollis. Vestibulum tincidunt sodales
turpis quis convallis. Curabitur id diam dictum
arcu placerat lobortis.

I want the text to format like this:

Lorem ipsum dolor
sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Curabitur
mollis lorem sit amet nisl scelerisque mollis.
Vestibulum tincidunt sodales turpis quis convallis.
Curabitur id diam dictum arcu placerat lobortis

As you can see the first line is the shortest one. I've tried searching for a solution, but to no avail; it's hard to know what to actually search for! I'm assuming if anyone has ever done this the solution will be in scripting rather than CSS. I would normally script this myself in PHP, but the thought of it hurts my brain!

Getting The First Paragraph From URL Which Doesn't Contain Script Tags

I want to grab from a URL the first paragraph which doesn't contain script tags and its words number is greater than 20. The right paragraph could be the 3rd one for example.

$start = strpos($url, '<p>');
$end = strpos($url, '</p>', $start);
$par1 = substr($url, $start, $end - $start + 4);
$count = str_word_count($par1);


This code is not exactly right. It shows the first paragraph in the URL, only if it has number of words > 20.

Html - Autoformat Paragraph Tags?

Mar 9, 2011

This is a fairly basic question however I've only ever managed to find three answers. I want to autoparagraph unformatted content that may or may not contain other html elements. The two good to go functions are the wordpress wpautop, HTMLPurifier AutoFormat.AutoParagraph and lastly some random addParagraphsNew. However the first is incompatible with my applications license, the second doesn't add line breaks within the paragraph tags and the third is flakey.

Does anyone know on a commercially suitable licensed script that allows html content that has line breaks and double line breaks to be converted into <br /> and <p> tags?

I believe the HTMLPurifier option is probably the best way to go my hacking into the AutoFormat.AutoParagraph plugin to get it to add line breaks but I was hoping was something slightly easier.
