Hi,
one of my customers has been using  Adblock Plus while editing pages in html editor which has resulted in an abp attribute bring added to every element.

<h1 abp="861">Text </h1>
<p abp="877" colspan="2">&nbsp;</p>
<p abp="873">&nbsp;</p>

Open in new window


Is there an easy way to search and remove all abp="some number" code using MySQL or PHP?

Thanks

Read each page from your database into a variable, delete those codes and then update the db with the content of the variable.

This will delete all occurrences of ' abp="123"' from a string:
$content = preg_replace("/ abp=\"\d+\"/", "", $content);

HTH,
Dan
