  • Resolved halben


    I was wondering if I could use preg_match in wordpress. I’m trying to validate a phone number and here is what I have:

    if (preg_match("/^[0-9]{3}-[0-9]{3}-[0-9]{4}$/", $sanitized_phone))
    			$errors[] = 'Error: Please enter a valid phone number. (e.g. 999-999-9999)';

    I tested it and there’s not error output. Anyone know why?

    My guess is that the issue is either on your reg exp or with the placement of the code in a larger script. WordPress uses standard PHP. so there is no reason why you can’t use preg_match().

    I figured it out. I’m a noob.

    I forgot !preg_match. Thanks for replying though.
