Get the Intro: PHP Paragraph Regular Expression
Recently I was playing around with WordPress' wp_posts table. I wanted to grab the basic information about my posts (ID, title, content, slug) and build a quick summary list of them. One problem I ran into was creating a content "intro." Luckily a quick regular expression allowed me to create the intro.
$intro = strip_tags($matches); //removes anchors and other tags from the intro
The above code extracts the first paragraph in a string. Since all of my posts begin with an introductory paragraph, this type of system will work.
