Hello,

I have $description and I would like to strip out all of the style and class tags with the allowed tags.

I tried this but no luck

<?
$desc = strip_tags($description,"<b></b><br><br /><p></p><strong></strong>");
echo preg_replace('#(<[a-z ]*)(style=("|\')(.*?)("|\'))([a-z ]*>)#', '\\1\\6', $desc);
?>

Try this perhaps:

$desc = strip_tags($description,"<b><br><br /><p><strong>");
echo preg_replace('#(<[a-z ]*)style=(?:"|\').*?(?:"|\')([a-z ]*>)#','$1$2',$desc);

Hello Sammy,

I did not know how to implement it, should I define the allowed and descr?

$desc = strip_tags($descr\, $allowed);

To keep the pattern somewhat more maintainable, I recommend running it twice rather than trying to adjust the pattern to allow the case:
<b attr=foo style="blah" attr="bar" class="asdf">

This will hopefully work for you:
$desc = strip_tags($description,"<b><br><br /><p><strong>");
$pattern = '#(<[a-z ]*)(?:style|class)\s*=\s*(?:"[^"]*"|\'[^\']*\')([^>]*>)#';
$replacement = '$1$2';
$result = preg_replace($pattern,$replacement,$desc);
$result = preg_replace($pattern,$replacement,$result);

And to output the result:

$desc = strip_tags($description,"<b><br><br /><p><strong>");
$pattern = '#(<[a-z ]*)(?:style|class)\s*=\s*(?:"[^"]*"|\'[^\']*\')([^>]*>)#';
$replacement = '$1$2';
$result = preg_replace($pattern,$replacement,$desc);
$result = preg_replace($pattern,$replacement,$result);
echo $result;
