Try preg_replace() like :

PHP Code:
$text "Im writing a script language that looks like 
        bbcode [ img]http://image.com/smiley.png[ /img] so far,
        i did evrything with"
;

$img preg_replace("/.*\\[img\\](.*)\\[\\/img\\].*/""\\\\1"$text);
echo 
$img
edit : hard to figure out how to display img markup properly

If you're not used to regular expression you can do something like this (not very clean solution though, i'd prefer reg expressions):
Code:
$newstring = strtr ( $inputstring, array("[ img ]" => "", "[ /img ]" => "") )
This will replace in inputstring the [ img ] and [ /img ] with an empty string (= remove it).
Like this you have in newstring just the content between the tags.

But nevertheless, if you really want to make it in a clean and much more elegant way, i suggest you to learn regular expressions (sooner or later you won't get around them anyway).

Thanks you all
Hylke

EDIT:
The code:
PHP Code:
 <?php
$text 
"Im writing a script language that looks like
        bbcode [ img]http://image.com/smiley.png[ /img] so far,
        i did evrything with"
;

$img preg_replace("/.*\[img\](.*)\[\/img\].*/""\\1"$text);
echo 
$img;
?>
Gives me the following output:
Quote:
Im writing a script language that looks like bbcode [ img]http://image.com/smiley.png[ /img] so far, i did evrything with
So i gues there's something wrong with the code.

You have to remove the spaces in the [ img] and [ /img] tag.

edit: (because the regular expression matches the tags without spaces).

I've done that, but it simply removes those img tags, but i want only the url, and not all the other text.

Thats exactly what it's supposed to.
It you want more to be removed, add the desired match to the regular expression.

Thats what i told you, you should learn how regular expressions work and how their syntax is in order to get that one straight. Thats why i showed you the version above avoiding regular expressions (in case you don't want to learn).

And btw, you just have to take Cedrik's example and substitute the string that is replaces those tags, and you have what you're looking for (if not, i didn't understand what you were looking for, and you have to tell me again).

Substitute = replace.
This means you just have to put the desired string instead of the one in the example.

In my system the regex give only the url, nothing more... try again (replace [image] by [img])

$text = "some words before [image]http://site.com/image.png[/image] some words after...";

$url = preg_replace("/.*\[image\](.*)\[\/image\].*/", "\\1", $text);
$echo $url;
