using preg_replace to replace a string
I've never used preg_repllace, so, m getting a bit confused to use them, i need to convert anyting like images/kid.jpg in my content to something like:
Here's how i get my content:
$filename = "template.php?id=$siteid¤tpage=$pagename";

The code that you posted has nothing to do with your request. Have you made any attempt to do the replacement on your own?

Show us what you tried, whether it worked or not, and we can advise from there. Or do you just want a solution handed to you on a plate?

well, since i have no knowledge about preg_replace, i just searched over google, and tried the code by copy/paste, but, couldn't get it, so, i decided to use str_replace, and it worked fine for me, only issue that i am facing is that i am not able to replace two search strings, i.e if the content contains either this or that or both, then replace both.
here's my code:
$Value = str_replace("$cmparray", "$root/workarea/sites/$siteid/images/", $sValue);
$sValue comes after reading from external file.
Hope its fine now

Try again without the double quotes around $cmparray.

Ah yea, my mistake...
but now i am facing the problem that i was actually afraid of, now if the content already has path like:
it gets replaced with:
Now i fear i have to use preg_replace for exact match.

Are you familiar with regular expressions at all? I fear just handing over a regular expression for you to use would wind the battle but not the war; I'd rather help teach you something than give copy/paste solutions.
If you have a spare few minutes, take a look at http://www.regular-expressions.info/ and particularly useful in your case will be anchors.
