Trim a PHP string before the last special character
This small PHP function is helping us to get only a part of a value (string) by using a specific character as an indicator.
How do I get only the last part of a value?
We can use the following function to get only a value after the last character we’ve passed to the function. For example,
$string = "123456"; is the start value and
$character = "5"; the last character we use to get the part, after exactly that character.
In this example, the start value is a URL and in result we only want to get the attached parameter value.
- Start value: https://domain.com/?color=black
- End Value: color=black
An additional example:
In this example, we have a text string as start value and we only want to get the gender.
- Start value: I’m male
- End Value: male
