How would I take into consideration two different Strings I would like to replace? The following code will remove the words Custom Price - but I would like to add an additional phrase to that, so that it is looking for two different strings.  I have named the second string $sig_alt
								<?php $xyz = WC()->cart->get_item_data( $cart_item );
								// THE SIGNAL STRING
										$sig = "Custom Price -";
										$sig_alt = "Bicycle Info -";
										
										// THIS STATEMENT ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE TEST DATA MIGHT NOT CONTAIN THE SIGNAL STRING
										$abc = $xyz;
										$abcb = $xyzb;
										// IF THE SIGNAL STRING IS FOUND IN THE TEST DATA
										if (strpos($xyz, $sig) !== FALSE) {
												$abc = str_replace($sig, NULL, $xyz);
										}
echo $abc; 											
								 ?>

Generally speaking, you would use one str_replace() function call for each string that you want to replace.

Hmm... The manual indicates that this would work, too.

<?php 
$xyz = WC()->cart->get_item_data( $cart_item );

// THE ARRAY OF SIGNAL STRINGS
$sig = array
( "Custom Price -"
, "Bicycle Info -"
)
;

// THIS USES AN ARRAY OF "NEEDLES"
$abc = str_replace($sig, NULL, $xyz);
echo $abc;
