    preg_replace warning about delimter

    Hi all,

    Not very good with preg_replace and was wondering if someone could provide a quick fix to this. I know that you have to add the slashes to the delimiter, but my delimiter is a variable and I don't know how to add it to that. What I have is...

    ....
    $article_body = preg_replace ($keyword,"<a href='$url'>$keyword</a>",$article_body);
    ....

    and I get the error

    Warning: preg_replace() [function.preg-replace]: Delimiter must not be alphanumeric or backslash

    Any help would be great. I've seen the backslashes for characters, but not for a variable. Is this even possible?

    Well I'd like to point out that you aren't really making use of preg_replace!
    I would recommend you use:
    str_replace($search, $replace, $subject)

    instead, as you aren't actually using an expression.

    Example of a regular expression (NOTE: the slashes around my expression):
    PHP Code:
    <?php

    $values
