to fire off this forum I'd like to ask how you do your BBcode without having linebreaks on places where they should not be (like I have now with my url tags

Give us a sample of your code.

well I'm not really having a good sample but this is how I used to do it.

-have a table in database with columns (bbcode,html)
-then use preg_replace() to replace bb with html.

but with the url tags I get a linebreak in the href='' part of the link and my browser does not like that, so it gives a half link.

hmm. that looks pretty difficult

Actually what I need is this.

I have to get the input text without linebreaks.
Then replace all the bbcode.
Then add linebreaks where needed without touching the html tags.

I don't see the problem with them linebreaks.
What about
$bbcode = preg_replace("/\[u\](.*?)\[\/u\]/si", "<u>\\1</u>", $bbcode);

no it's not the problem with <u> tags but with <a href=''> tags.

when you convert the bbcode to html and you accedently have a linebreak in the href='' part, your link gets messed up.
$text = preg_replace("/\[url\](.*)\[\/url\]/","<a href='$1">$1</a>","http://dit.is.\neen.link.nl");

gives: http://dit.is.

but I already solved it with a text parser which adds linebreaks to the text but leaves html tags untouched.

btw what does the 'si' mean after the regex pattern?

Those are so called "modifiers".
i means case-insensitive
s means newlines are included in the match, which may be able to solve your problem as well.

a little question:

why do u use (.*?) instead of (.*) because * already checks for 0 or more instances of the previous character?

? checks for 0 or 1 instance. you don't need it if u use * or do you?
