I want to delete multiple tags of both opening and closing tags.

For example, in the next tags,

 

<span class="b">text</span>

 

I want to delete both <span class="b"> and </span>

but text should not be deleted.

 

There are a lot of codes like 

 

<span class="b">text</span>

<span class="b">happy</span>

<span class="b">time</span>

 

How can I delete not only <span class="b">, but also </span> but keep the 

text

happy

time

? (in the example above)

 

Thank you for your help.

You could use the Find and Replace option in Dreamweaver:

 

Find:

<span class="b">text</span>

 

Replace with:

text

Well just perform 'Find and Replace' 3 times 1 for each situation, DW will take care of all the instances it finds.

 

Find:

<span class="b">happy</span>

Replace with:

happy

 

Find:

<span class="b">time</span>

Replace with:

time

 

 

There may be an expression you can use to just find all instances of:

 

<span class="b"></span>

 

and replace it with nothing, lets see if anyone can help out with an expression.

yes, exactly!  this is what I wanted to find out. I thought the same thing with you and thought it should not be difficult. But so far, adobe support even does not know it, so this can be very challenging topic. 

 

I just wanted to get rid of all the unnecessary tags which is accidentally added.

 

If we know this method, I think it helps a lot of blogers time, including me.
