Is it possible to strip <IMG> tags?

The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

Is it possible to strip <IMG> tags? Can't Post

I want to restrict my users from posting images with the articles that they create, there is an image upload function to handle this.

I understant the basics of the cleanHTML function, but cannot quite seem to get the correct syntax to removes images.

Thanks a lot, John.

Hi John Byrne:

unclean = unclean.replace(/<img[^>]*>/gi, '');


Don't give up!!

Thanks a lot for the reply BUT just after I posted, I managed to solve the problem \o/

I also managed to stop tables and other stuff being pasted in, I find clients have a habit of making good websites look bad by using features just for the sake of them.

I hear you are quite the HTML area genius Luis, look forward to future mods ;)
