Target version:-


With php 5.5, some warnings appear when answering to a form :

18-04-2014 08:12
Deprecated function(8192): preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead
Backtrace :
/media/adelaunay/f8300cb9-ce6d-419c-bd74-5040e0102657/www/clients/1026/inc/toolbox.class.php:490        Toolbox::userErrorHandlerNormal()

After some tests, i suggest the below code :

$chaine = preg_replace_callback("#\[url\]((ht|f)tp://)([^\r\n\t<\"]*?)\[/url\]#si", 
                  function($matches) {
                    return '<a href=\"'.$matches[1].
                           str_replace(' ', '%20', $matches[3]).'\">'.
                  }, $chaine);

instead preg_replace l158

Escaping a double quote is useless when the string is between single quotes.

Implemented in a very similar way in revision 114
