Query needed, thanks!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm looking to clean up some old vBulletin BBcode.

I want to remove the actual codes and what is between them.

So for example, I want to remove:
[QT]random text here alpha-numeric etc.[/QT]

MariaDB and MySQL 8 both have REGEXP_REPLACE.  A regex like this would probably work to find your bbcode:  


Replace that with and empty string, and you'll remove the bbcode blocks from the messages.
