Cleanup Text

Function to remove smart quotes, HTML and other special characters from text. Call the function with text as argument, function returns clean text.

How do I use the plugin?
Call the function cleanup_text() from within your theme or other plugin. Supply the text to be cleaned as the first argument.
E.g. <?php $clean_text = cleanup_text( $text_to_clean ) ; ?>

How do I get the plugin to remove HTML?
Call the function with TRUE as the second argument.
E.g. <?php $clean_text = cleanup_text( $text_to_clean, TRUE) ; ?>

Can I use cleanup_text for web pages?
Yes, you could use cleanup_text to clean text that will be displayed on a web page. You would probably use something like:
E.g. <?php echo cleanup_text( get_the_content() ) ; ?>

But the results will probably not be what you want because cleanup_text uses "\n" for new lines, and web pages use <br /> or some other HTML notation.

If you really want to do this let me know and I'll update the plugin so it can be used in this way.
