    How to clean datafeed of this situation?
    Hi, folks,

    I was using phpbb to do some sort of tracking/updating some topics from the net on my laptop. Now I want to export the database into .xml file for a webmerge publishing as static images. Can anyone tell me how to set up the clean rules in my case?

    I have five fields in the exported xml file, post_id, bbcode_uid, post_subject, post_text, post_sub_title. How can the following rules be implemented?

    A) Remove post_id, bbcode_uid from database
    B) For the other fields, if a bbcode_uid is found in the text, remove it.

    For security reasons, for each post in phpbb has its own bbcode_uid. This means, if 1000 records were reported, there are 1000 different bbcode_uid appears in different records. No same bbcode_uid in same record. This give me difficulties, because I have to specify the bbcode_uid to be removed one by one for each records.....

    Is there an easy way to do this with AMWSO?

    Suppose I have a bold word in phpbb marked with html tag <b>. Its database export would be like the following:
    ++++++++++++++
    [b:aef8e565f6]Once [/b:aef8e565f6]captured, digital photographs
    ++++++++++++++

    If it is an image, it would be like
    ++++++++++++++
    [IMG:aef8e565f6]http://localhost/phpbb/images/xxxx.jpg[/IMG:aef8e565f6]
    ++++++++++++++

    These UIDs are different from record to record, which makes me extremely difficult to remove.

    Any one has similar experience?


    Thanks
    David
