is this the right syntax?

  • Hi,

    I’m a regex newbie but have got a regex builder telling me I have the right syntax yet I get an error from this plugin: Invalid regular expression: Delimiter must not be alphanumeric or backslash

    What I’m trying to do is rid my site of a Youtube plugin shortcode since WP now natively supports Youtube videos.

    So I’m using the following regex:
    \[youtube_video](.*?)\[/youtube_video]
    with a replace of:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=$1
    but still get the error.

    Am I doing something wrong in getting this to work with this plugin?
    Any help would be magic.
    Thanks Martin
