    Hi,

    We need a query for extract a filename of a html string on Excerpt for each post.
    We also need to have a list of filename of image of the html string on "Excerpt"

    How can we do this on PHP using wordpress api? or using mysql query?

    Best Regards.

    Use something along this line:
    preg_match_all("/a[\s]+[^>]*?href[\s]?=[\s\"\']+"."(.*?)[\"\']+.*?>"."([^<]+|.*?)?<\/a>/", $excerpt, &$matches);

    Where $excerpt is the excerpt output and the urls will end up in the $matches[1] array. There are endless variations for the regexp (first argument) that you can vary for your specific needs. If you don't understand regexp, a search will bring up many workable examples.

    I haven't tested this one, I just grabbed it as an example.
