I wanted to make a PHP function that would make text bold between double asterisks, and italic between one asterisk, (quite like the editor on ).
Same rules apply, if there's a space between the * and the word, it shouldn't render.
Who can help me out? I tried to, but I only came this far, as I don't know how to make the odd asterisks "< b >" and the even ones "< /b >".
(I can't type them without the spaces, will render the text between as bold.....)
$thenewtext = str_replace("**", "<b>", "**Hello World** of PHP");
A simple regex will do the trick:
