I am using Wordpress which uses MySQL.

One of the plugins stores data in this format:

[["","","Member Name","Total Points"],["1.","","Player 1","80"],["2.","PC","Player 2","60"],["3.","","Player 3","60"]]

Open in new window


This data represents four columns in a table which I need to parse into an array for my custom application.

The data is in JSON format so you can use the json_decode function to get an array:

$str = '[["","","Member Name","Total Points"],["1.","","Player 1","80"],["2.","PC","Player 2","60"],["3.","","Player 3","60"]]';
$myArray = json_decode($str);
var_dump($myArray);

Open in new window
