Check If a String Contains a Specific Word in PHP

in PHP on May 6, 2020

We can use the PHP strpos() Function to do that.

The strpos() function finds the position of the first occurrence of a string inside another string.


strpos ( string $haystack , mixed $needle [, int $offset = 0 ] ) : int

In simple terms,

strpos(the string to loon into, the string to find, start point of search)

First two parameters are required and third one is optional.

Example to search a word:

$word = "Yogesh";
$searchInThisString = "This website is Yogesh Chauhan's Blog";
if(strpos($searchInThisString, $word) !== false){
    echo "word found";
    //add more logic if you want
} else{
    echo "word NOT found";
    //add more logic if you want
