Having problem with php str_replace function

Hi
I'm have a issue with the php function str_replace.

I have the following block of text from with I want the function to find
s:26 "Simple Design with 1 Image" and replace it with s:19 "Design with 1 Image"

a:1:{s:1:"a";a:1:{i:1;a:3:{s:2:"id";s:1:"1";s:4:"name";s:8:"Artwork?";s:7:"options";a:4:{i:0;a:2:{s:2:"id";s:1:"1";s:4:"name";s:22:"Supplying Own [¿0]ash";}i:1;a:2:{s:2:"id";s:1:"2";s:4:"name";s:34:"Text Only with Simple Fonts a[¿1]";}i:2;a:2:{s:2:"id";s:1:"3";s:4:"name";s:26:"Simple Design with 1 Image";}i:3;a:2:{s:2:"id";s:1:"4";s:4:"name";s:35:"Complex Design with Multiple Images";}}}}}

the functions work if I just replace Simple Design with 1 Image but when I have the whole string with double quotes it doesn't work.

This is the code i'm using and $row[0] is the above block of text that is pulled from the database
$strfind1 = "s:26 \"Simple Design with 1 Image\"";
$strrep = "s:19 \"Design with 1 Image\"";

$newdata = str_replace($strfind1, $strrep, $row[0]);

Open in new window


Thank you in advance for any help
