Shortcode

The Shortcode Class s a simple regex based parser that allows you to replace simple bbcode-like tags within a HTMLText or HTMLVarchar field when rendered into a content.

Examples of shortcode tags:

{shortcode}
{shortcode parameter="value"}

Example of escaping shortcodes:

{{shortcode}}

Add new shortcode

Your shorcode function:

function returnSiteUrl() {
   return Fansoro::$site['url'];
}

Add shortcode

Shortcode::add('site_url', 'returnSiteUrl');

Add new shortcode with Variables

Your shorcode function:

function foo($attributes) {
    // Extract attributes
    extract($attributes);

    // text
    if (isset($text)) $text = $text; else $text = '';

    // return
    return $text;
}

Add shortcode {foo text="Hello World"}

Shortcode::add('foo', 'foo');

Usage:

{foo text="Hello World"}

Result:

Hello World

Add new shortcode with Variables and Content

Your shorcode function:

function foo($attributes, $content) {
    // Extract attributes
    extract($attributes);

    // text
    if (isset($color)) $color = $color; else $color = 'black';

    // return
    return '<span style="color:'.$color.'">'.Filter::apply('content', $content).'</span>';
}

Add shortcode {foo color="red"}

Shortcode::add('foo', 'foo');

Usage:

{foo color="red"}Hello World{/foo}

Result:
Hello World

Check if a shortcode has been registered.

if (Shortcode::exists('foo')) {
    // do something...
}

Remove a specific registered shortcode.

Shortcode::delete('foo');

Remove all registered shortcodes.

Shortcode::clear();

Braces

The shortcode parser does not accept braces within attributes. Thus the following will fail:

{foo attribute="{Some value}"}Hello World{/foo}
