Strip HTML and PHP tags from a string


strip_tags

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

strip_tagsStrip HTML and PHP tags from a string

Description

string strip_tags ( string $str [, string $allowable_tags ] )

This function tries to return a string with all NUL bytes, HTML and PHP tags stripped from a given str. It uses the same tag stripping state machine as the fgetss() function.

Parameters

str

The input string.

allowable_tags

You can use the optional second parameter to specify tags which should not be stripped.

Note:

HTML comments and PHP tags are also stripped. This is hardcoded and can not be changed with allowable_tags.

Note:

This parameter should not contain whitespace. strip_tags() sees a tag as a case-insensitive string between < and the first whitespace or >. It means that strip_tags("<br/>", "<br>") returns an empty string.

Return Values

Returns the stripped string.

Changelog

Version Description
5.0.0 strip_tags() is now binary safe
4.3.0 HTML comments are now always stripped

Examples

Example #1 strip_tags() example

<?php
$text 
'<p>Test paragraph.</p><!-- Comment --> <a href="#fragment">Other text</a>';
echo 
strip_tags($text);
echo 
"\n";

// Allow <p> and <a>
echo strip_tags($text'<p><a>');
?>

The above example will output:

 Test paragraph. Other text <p>Test paragraph.</p> <a href="#fragment">Other text</a> 

Notes

Warning

Because strip_tags() does not actually validate the HTML, partial or broken tags can result in the removal of more text/data than expected.

Warning

This function does not modify any attributes on the tags that you allow using allowable_tags, including the style and onmouseover attributes that a mischievous user may abuse when posting text that will be shown to other users.
