Hello world,
I have to ask you about preg_replace
i need to change <table> -> [table] and </table> -> [/table]
can i make it both in a one expression?
Thanks in advance!

You can try this :

Because </table> just is what it is, I would just use a str_replace().

For table, presumably you want something that can catch
<table class="someclass">

In that case, a pattern like

$pattern = '/<(table([^><]*>/U';

should work.

if u want a single pattern and replace for both jsut use this pattern:

\<(/?table(?: [^>]*))\>

and replace with <$1>
