I've tried some stuff to make a modifier that would work like the 'strip_tags' modifier for BBcode, but nothing seems to be working for me.

any suggestions on how to make this work?

i figure it'll use the preg_replace PHP function kinda like this

return preg_replace('$pattern', '', $string);

but i cant figure out the proper format for $pattern

all i want to do is get rid of any bbcode syntax (i.e. [b], [/b], [i], etc...) for a block of text so i can show an un-formatted portion of a bbcode formatted article on the main page.

Try this.

Code:

preg_replace("/\[|\]|\[[^\]]*\]/","",$string);

[/code][/quote]

Close! that got rid of the square brackets, but it didnt get rid of the stuff inside... so instead of [b] ... [/b], it showed b ... /b

i want it to remove the square brackets AND everything in them...
