Thread: seo url friendly slug

    seo url friendly slug

    Can anyone point me towards a decent function for stripping out spaces and non-url-friendly characters from strings?

    This is the php version I found on bitrepository

    PHP Code:
    function friendly_seo_string($string$separator '-')
    $string trim($string);

    $string strtolower($string); // convert to lowercase text

    // Recommendation URL: http://www.webcheatsheet.com/php/regular_expressions.php

    // Only space, letters, numbers and underscore are allowed

    $string trim(ereg_replace("[^ A-Za-z0-9_]"" "$string));


    "t" (ASCII 9 (0x09)), a tab.
    "n" (ASCII 10 (0x0A)), a new line (line feed).
    "r" (ASCII 13 (0x0D)), a carriage return. 


    $string ereg_replace("[ tnr]+""-"$string);

    $string str_replace(" "$separator$string);

    $string ereg_replace("[ -]+""-"$string);


    $str friendly_seo_string('Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text.');

    // Outputs: lorem-ipsum-is-simply-dummy-text
    echo $str;
