//$match is now part whatever number $count is currently of the array of $data//
$match = explode(">", $match)[1];
//this is to remove the url from room name, the [1] on end means text after first ">"//
$match = explode("</a", $match)[0];
//$match should now be the rooms name, the [0] on end means we want text before</a//
if (strlen($match) > 1) goto dis;
goto next;
$num = $num + 1;
echo '['.$num.'] '.$match.'<br>';
