Before we start, strip_tags() doesn't work.
I've got some data that needs to be parsed, the problem is, I need to get rid of all the HTML that has been formated very strangely. the tags look like this: (notice the spaces)
< p > blah blah blah < / p > < a href= " link.html " > blah blah blah < /a >
All the regexs I've been trying aren't working, and I don't know enough about regex formating to make them work. I don't care about preserving anything inside of the tags, and would prefer to get rid of the text inside a link if I could.
Anyone have any idea?
(I really need to just sit down and learn regular expressions one day)
preg_replace('/<[^>]*>/', '', $content)
strip_tags() will work if you use
html_entity_decode() on a variable before
<?php $text = '< p > blah blah blah < / p > < a href= " link.html " > blah blah blah< /a >'; echo strip_tags(html_entity_decode($text)); ?>
