I want to put a snippet in my functions.php that will search/replace a string in $content as the post is saved.

I haven't been able to find any examples of that.

Can you show me how to do this?

Thanks,

Chris

It would look something like this:

function my_sanitize_content( $content ) {
    return str_replace( "Chris", "Jason", $content );
}
add_filter( 'content_save_pre' , 'my_sanitize_content' , 10, 1);

Open in new window
