Perform Function on Each Item of an Array

Last updated on:

array_map() takes two arguments. The first argument is the function to perform on the second argument (which is an array). Returns a new array.

$original = array('<p>Paragraph</p>', '<strong>Bold</strong>');
$new = array_map('strip_tags', $original);

// $new is now array('Paragraph', 'Bold');

    Nice one. Didn’t know about this function yet. Normally I would do a foreach loop.

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";

There's a whole bunch of content on CSS-Tricks.
