PHP Remove last character from string

Want to remove the last character from your text. Just use Substr_Replace. This is how.

PHP’s substr_replace replaces text within a portion of a string. In this case we only want to replace the last character with nothing. Here is the code sample:

$old_string = "My-Category-";
// remove the last hyphen from the string
$new_string = substr_replace($old_string,"",-1);
echo $new_string;
// should now read "My-Category"

This should replace the last character of a string with nothing.

  2. Personally i prefer this approach

    $old_string = “My-Category-“;
    // remove the last hyphen from the string
    $new_string = substr($old_string,-1);
    echo $new_string;
    // should now read “My-Category”
