Google came up with a number of methods to convert bbcode to html, but not the other way around.
Unfortunately I'm not that well-versed with regular expressions. Maybe someone could give pointers?
Some options I have are:
PHP - This article, Simple and Complex BBcode with PHP, uses str_replace to convert bbcode to html:
$string = 'This is [b]cool[/b] - [url=http://www.tutorio.com]Tutorio.com Tutorials[/url] $bb-replace = array ('/(\[[Bb]\])(.+)(\[\/[Bb]\])/','/(\[url=)(.+)(\])(.+)(\[\/url\])/'); $bb-replacements = array ('<b>\\2</b>','<a href="\\2">\\4</a>'); $string = preg_replace($bb-replace, $bb-replacements, $string); print $string;Textpad - Maybe a macro could handle this.
