Hi,

I have a div:

<div class="mada rock rolling">Amateur question</div>

Open in new window


I want to find this div with the PHP Simple HTML DOM Parser.

The following code does not work:
$html->find('div.mada.rock.rolling');

Open in new window


Can you help me, brothers and sisters? :)

Try:

$html->find('div[class=mada rock rolling]');

or try:

$html->find('div.mada .rock .rolling');

brendonfeeley, I am looking at your answer :)

gr8gonzo, jkdt0077, this does not work:

$html->find("div[class='mada rock rolling']");
$html->find("div[class='mada .rock .rolling']")
$html->find('div[class=.mada.rock.rolling]');
$html->find('div.mada .rock .rolling');

What about these:

$html->find('div.mada, div.rock, div.rolling');

$html->find('div[class=mada], div[class=rock], div[class=rolling]');

Also, and forgive me if you know this, but:

$html->find('div.mada, div.rock, div.rolling');

Will return an array of matches. In order to output all matches, you will need to loop through them:

foreach($html->find('div.mada, div.rock, div.rolling') as $element) {
    echo $element->plaintext . '<br/>';
}

I don't think this lib can parse more than one class name...

I just load the HTML into a variable, replace the three classes with one name of my own and parse the modififed version of the HTML. :)

Sorry - I was away on vacation but just got back and checking on this. It looks like you didn't use my code.

I suggested:
$html->find('div[class=mada rock rolling]');

You said you tried:
$html->find("div[class='mada rock rolling']");

Notice that I did not have the single quotes inside mine. I just tried my suggestion and it worked.
