Expression
(\[[Ii][Mm][Gg]\])(\S+?)(\[\/[Ii][Mm][Gg]\])
Description
easy when you want to allow your users to post images, but in a controlled way. I used it like this (in php): $text = preg_replace("/(\[IMG\])(\S+?)(\[\/IMG\])/is", "<a href=\"\\2\" target=\"_blank\"><IMG SRC=\"\\2\" align=\"center\" height=\"100\" border=\"0\"></a>",$text); so whenever they use [img]http://www.foo.com/bleh.jpg[/img] it will be converted to <a href="http://www.foo.com/bleh.jpg" target="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://www.foo.com/bleh.jpg" align="center" height="100" border="0"></a> so you get a 100 pixels high picture, and when they click on it it opens in a new window... (to prevent users from posting huge pictures and stuff)
Matches
[IMG]http://bleh.jpg[/IMG] | [ImG]bleh[/imG] | [img]ftp://login:pass@bleh.gif[/img]
Non-Matches
<img src="bleh.jpg">
