I would like to replace any string with this format :
[any thing inside]

to remove the text inside [] + the brackets

thank you for your help

If you simply want to remove both the square brackets and the arbitrary content they enclose (allowing for multiline and case-insensitivity), this ought to do it:

$string = $your_text_source;
$pattern = '/\[((im).+)\]/';
$replace = '';

preg_replace($pattern, $replace, $string);
