if your special characters is only a space, you can use trim() also

i think you are trying to do a string assignment there.

A string literal can be specified in four different ways:

Hi. Try this.

$peoplename = 'Michael ';
$nbsp = ' ';
$peoplnamereplaced = preg_replace('/'.$nbsp.'/', '', $peoplename);
echo $peoplenamereplaced;


Hope this helps.

$peoplenamereplaced = str_replace($nbsp, '', $peoplenamereplace);
