Hi
I need to turn
Size{2} :  L/XL[22], S/M[19]

into

Size:L/XL,S/M

This is just an example, Size could be Colour or Style etc and the size options could be numerous.

One option would be to remove particular characters:

$data = preg_replace('#[{}\[\]\d ]#', '', $data);

Open in new window

If you need to retain numbers that aren't in braces/brackets, then let me know.
