Remove special characters

A simple tool to remove special characters (like !#$”.~_) and keep only alphanumeric characters. I created this specifically to replace Forminator’s auto-generated “value” fields for check boxes, radio buttons and select drop-downs, but there are a number of other things it could be helpful with.

This tool:

  • Removes all spaces and special characters and converts them into dashes
  • Converts to lowercase
  • Removes starting and ending dashes and replaces multiple consecutive dashes with one
