I guess that i must use some kind of search within content i get from url?
I knew that you'd ask that question
which is why I included the third and final link in my previous post. Try this
, I've used this method and it's extremely easy to understand, because there aren't any complicated regular expressions.
I'll edit this post when I have some hard code you can copy in (that uses preg_match regexs, not the above method)
Be back in a jiffy.
EDIT: Here's some hastily hacked together code that seems to work fine for me.
$full_contents = "Hello there, <div id=\"blah\">useful content</div> nope!";
$tagname = 'blah';
echo $matches; //Should only return 'useful content', because that's what's inside <div id="blah"> ... </div>
And to integrate it with file_get_contents(), just replace the $full_contents variable with your file_get_contents() line. To change the div you're looking for, edit the $tagname variable.
