Here's what I ran:

Code: Select all

$text = '<r><B><s>[b]</s>bold<e>[/b]</e></B> :lol:</r>';
Here's what I got:

Code: Select all

 bold  :lol:
Does it work differently for you?
Hi there, I saw a problem today and saw here on your example the same problem. strip_bbcode adds a space when removing bbcode.
So if we've: Some text with bold. Text
It will become: Some text with bold . Text

And we don't want that extra space :/

There's nothing in phpBB that does that specifically. For messages posted on 3.2, you can remove most formatting with s9e\TextFormatter\Utils::removeFormatting($xml). That's what strip_bbcode() uses via clean_formatting().
I wrote the thing that does BBCodes in 3.2.
