Hi all, I am at a stand still with trying to figure this out.

I have a textarea, i would like to check for links entered by users and replace/remove the anchor attribute from the string.

ie. change <a href='google.com'>website</a> to website its more so to validate ( i have a php side working to validate for links but am trying to get jquery to just remove it and maybe say a warning.

function textarea(){
	var message = $("#text").val();
     // How would you check the text here and remove all links typed in by the user

if someone might know where to start with this it would be much appreciated

Sometimes another view can be so helpful.
