As part of my own personal cheat sheet, I’ll be adding a selection of code snippets and shortcuts.
Here’s a bit of regex I use quite a bit in Dreamweaver for Find/Replace.
The Dreamweaver wildcard:
Used in this example below to rename links in a page with a .php extension.
Using regular expressions, use “([^<]*)” in place of the content you want to find/replace.
Add $1 in the in the Replace box where you want to add your substitution.
([^<]*) is stored (use $1 to retreive in replace)
[^"]* is unstored
You can also do Find/Replace to recall multiple variables at once, like this:
If you want to use multiple wildcards:
([^<]*) ([^<]*) ([^<]*)
$1 $2 $3
