PHP URL Tag Formatting

By Chris 'autolycus' Bokitch

The url tags on this site and on the Chatbear message board system (which most of my tags are based on) use this format:

$string = preg_replace("/url=(.*?)\[/", "<a href=\"\\1\">", $string);
$string = ereg_replace("\]url", "</a>", $string);

    url=http://collective.valve-erc.com/[VERC Collective]url
