Until the website give me an access to his API, i need to display only 2 things from this website :

What i want to grab // Example on a live page

Those 2 things are contained in a div :

<div style="float: right; margin: 10px;">
here what i want to display on my website

The problem is that i found an example on stackoverflow, but i never wrote preg_match before. How to do this with the data i want to grabb ? Thank you

<?php   $html = file_get_contents($st_player_cv->getUrlEsl());

    'What do i need to write here ?',
    $posts, // will contain the data
    PREG_SET_ORDER // formats data into an array of posts

foreach ($posts as $post) {
    $premium = $post[1];
    $level = $post[2];

    // do something with data

    The DOM way to do it would be

    $dom = new DOMDocument;
    $xPath = new DOMXPath($dom);
    $nodes = $xPath->query('//div[@style="float: right; margin: 10px;"]');
    foreach($nodes as $node) {
        echo $node->nodeValue, PHP_EOL;

    but there is a whole slew of JavaScript in the page that modifies the DOM heavily after the page was loaded. Since any PHP script based fetching will not execute any JavaScript, the style we search for in the XPath does not exist yet and we won't get any results (the Regex suggesed by Hannes doesn't work for the same reason). Neither do the level numbers on the badge exist yet.

    As Wrikken pointed out in the comments, there also seems to be some mechanism to block certain requests. I had the message once, but I am not sure what triggers it, because I could also fetch page on several occasions.

    To cut a long story short: you cannot achieve what you are trying to do with this page.

    If you want something more generic

      preg_match('/<div[^>]+?>(.*?)<\/div>/', $myhtml, $result);
      echo $result[1] . "

    $myhtml contains the code html you have to analyze. $result is the array that contains the regexp and () content after the regular expression was applied. $result[1] will give you what is between the <div ... > and </div>.

    This way, even if the <div differs (class name change or different attributes), it'll still work.

    this regex '#<div style="float: right; margin: 10px;">(.*)</div>#' should do the trick (yeah) but i would advice you to use DOM & XPath.


    Here is an Xpath / DOM Example:

    $html = <<<HTML
        <div style="float: right; margin: 10px;"> here what i want to display on my website </div>
        <div> even more nonsense </div>
    $doc = new DOMDocument();
    $xpath = new DOMXpath($doc);
    $elements = $xpath->query('//div[@style="float: right; margin: 10px;"]');
    echo $elements->item(0)->nodeValue;
