Last Modified: 2012-05-09

What I want to do is get some usernames from a specific page. Here is the sytax of my $content

<a href="/user/DaveBlender" onmousedown="yt.analytics.trackEvent('ChannelPage', 'subscriptions_text_link', '15Gigs - DaveBlender')" title="DaveBlender">
.......code in between.....
<a href="/user/electricdreamdesigns" onmousedown="yt.analytics.trackEvent('ChannelPage', 'subscriptions_text_link', '15Gigs - electricdreamdesigns')" title="electricdreamdesigns">

Open in new window

So what I would like to do is fetch usernames themseves eg DaveBlender, electricdreamdesigns and store them in array.

Does anyone know what pattern should I use for this preg_match_all

Thanks a ton!
