This is a once off job, and it is quite simple. The mySQL database for my Joomla site requires the text of every article to be passed through a string parser (anyone familiar with Joomla would know that article content is stored in the table "content" in the column "fulltext").
The following php function simplifies the parser:
// do something with $text...
The requirements of this job; write a php script that will modify the article content (via my pre-written parser) for every article in the Joomla mySQL database.
Conditions.. I have been ripped off one to many times at freelancer.com. Therefore, you will not have access to my live site, rather, the script will be designed to use variables for the SQL username/password/database information. I know you would MUCH rather just run the script from the server, to bad. Thank the last two people that have turned my site into a mailing bot..
Notes. Every article requires the content of it to be modified via the parser, how and why is a story for another day. As far as you need to be concerned, the parser works as shown above.
