Default Replace method don't work with [ ] /

I’m having problem with replace method, I can’t replace the char “[”, “]” and “/”. I tried with back slash, ascii, and didn’t worked. Look the example:

var tex = "[link href=”...”] Test [/link]";

tex = tex.replace(/[link href=/gi,'<a href=');
tex = tex.replace(/[/link]/gi,'</a>');


Someone have any idea?

[ and ] are reserved characters, used to delineate character sets such as [1-9] for digits except zero. You should be able to write:
