Check If a String Contains a Specific Word in PHP
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
