Filter mysql result after certain text (regex)

Last Modified: 2020-01-09
Note:The table itsels is irrelavent to the question and as such it's not posted. (becuase the query is correct).

My question is :
Is there an SQL way to filter (such as regex) only select (not to update the table just display when queried)
out everything after the pipeline.

1) I only want to display/query not update the query results/
Here is the query result (which is working fine and the output is what should be outputed)   the "pipe " /  "|" delimiter is not another column
I will repeat again so it's not confusing
the "pipe " /  "|" delimiter is not another column it's one string.

3)The query

SELECT meta_value FROM wp_postmeta WHERE meta_key LIKE 'etimeclockwp-in%'

2)  the output (this is one column).

3) Sample output after the questioned query  :

Thank You.
