In MySQL, you can use the REPLACE function along with some string manipulation functions to replace strings in brackets with <span> tags. Here's an example of how you can do it:

  1. Let's say you have a table named my_table with a column called my_column that contains strings with brackets.
  2. You can use the REPLACE function to replace the brackets with tags. For example, to replace [string] with string, you can use the following query: SELECT REPLACE(REPLACE(my_column, '[', ''), ']', '') AS replaced_string FROM my_table; This query uses two nested REPLACE functions. The inner REPLACE replaces the opening bracket [ with , and the outer REPLACE replaces the closing bracket ] with .
  3. The result of this query will give you a new column replaced_string with the replaced strings in tags.


Note that this method assumes that the brackets in your strings are always properly matched and there are no nested brackets. If you have nested brackets, a more complex solution using regular expressions or a custom function may be needed.
