The answer is


Simply use str_replace:

$text = str_replace(' ', '_', $text);

You would do this after your previous substr and strtolower calls, like so:

$text = substr($text,0,10);
$text = strtolower($text);
$text = str_replace(' ', '_', $text);

If you want to get fancy, though, you can do it in one line:

$text = strtolower(str_replace(' ', '_', substr($text, 0, 10)));

This is probably what you need:

$text = str_replace(' ', '_', substr($text, 0, 10));

You need first to cut the string in how many pieces you want. Then replace the part that you want:

 $text = 'this is the test for string.';
 $text = substr($text, 0, 10);
 echo $text = str_replace(" ", "_", $text);

This will output:

this_is_th


Just do:

$text = str_replace(' ', '_', $text)

You can try

$string = "this is the test for string." ;
$string = str_replace(' ', '_', $string);
$string = substr($string,0,10);

var_dump($string);

Output

this_is_th
