Sourcerer Popular Plugin

Sourcerer - place any code anywhere.

Sourcerer enables you to place PHP and any kind of HTML style code (including CSS and JavaScript) right in to your content! Not only in your articles, but also in sections, categories, modules, components, META tags, etc.

You can now just place your original codes right into your WYSIWYG editor. The only thing you have to do is surround the code with the Sourcerer tags. Easy peasy!

So now you can also use PHP scripts in your content. That opens up a great deal of possibilities.

Most Joomla! Text Editors will strip parts of your HTML code, like JavaScripts (think of statistics scripts) and movie embed tags. With Sourcerer you won't have these limitations.

Easy to use editor button
Sourcerer comes with a very easy to use editor button. This will help you paste your code in a clean format that will not cause any problems. Also it comes with syntax coloring (php, js, css, html).

When you need to include a script, simple or complex, made by another developer, and do not need to integrate it as a joomla extension, it works great!

I used it a couple of times already for a meta search script, Combined (HTML, JavaScript and PHP), and I had no issue with sourcerer. Documentation is well done, forum is always at hand, and Peter is always helpful!

And if you need more options, just go for the PRO version ;-)

I have used many of the sourcer extentions of joomla. It's really nice.

They providing the joomla extention with certain functionalities enabled is a big treasure for the joomla developers!

I really cannot imagine how to built my website without Sourcerer. It should be standard Joomla extension. Obviously support is on the same level. On forum I received reply to my question immediatelly. Rating: excellent!

I installed Sourcerer (now the PRO version ) on a site that will eventually have quite a lot of custom code, in modules and articles. It works better than I expected, and the support from the dev is very quick. Yet another 'no number' extension I could not do without.

Used this plugin to insert some quick codes into my Joomla site, and it worked like a charm! Need to mention that the pro version is definitely worth the money. It opens up lots more configurations, especially useful for detailed security purposes. Also, the support is great. I noticed one little bug in the pro version and requested support on the forum, and the author sent me a updated dev version within 12 hours! You won't regret paying for it.

This is the No. 1 extension for inserting even complex code into articles. Even for free versions the developers support ist excellent. I´d give ten stars if I could!

I have been using Sourcerer since the V1 days and without it I could not do what I do on my Joomla sites.

I often am writing integration with an API to get and send data. Without being able to integrate PHP directly into my forms and make the correct API calls my work would be much more complicated!

When you need some customization in behavior of your modules or articles - Sourcerer with possibilities of php or javascript is the best solution - fast and simple. Also support is excellent, I need some help and Peter answered in minutes, thanks. I recommend using Sourcerer in cooperation with Modules/Articles Anywhere extension.

Love this extensions. Took us a while to get some things on our end figured out with our code but the support from developer was helpful and its working like a charm.

As soon as you got the challenge to integrate php or javascript directly in your page, take this extension - seriously: it could not be any easier!

Even in the free version, sourcerer got everything you need to include your code, plus it is secure as you can choose your own triggerword, which is needed to accept and execute code.

If you should ever have a problem with sourcerer, just go to the official website and ask your question in the forum - Peter's support is just outstanding.

Five stars for this extension - this is truely deserved!

Thanks Peter for this extension. I was used to use Jumi (also a good extension) but the Sourcer allows a lot of freedom to add code anywhere without creating our own modules or component. It's really great and very usefull for website developpers in need of customisation for their customers.

This is a great addition to any Joomla site and allows you to easily add little things that can improve functionality and usability for users of any joomla site. Along with a select few other extensions, this is installed on every Joomla site I build. Thanks again to the developers for creating this and providing an accurate description.

I have been using several NoNumber extensions for a while, but just came upon the need for Sourcerer today. I had some issues getting some PHP syntax correct and Peter was superbly helpful! Fast, accurate, and FRIENDLY responses to my forum post are very much appreciated - especially since my issue had nothing to do with the plugin itself, but rather with my usage of PHP!! Thanks to Peter for another amazing plugin!!!

I've been using Joomla since 2007 and I have used this extension in several sites to place custom PHP and JavaScript code into modules and articles over the last few years. It is a must install for me whenever I need a custom functionality that no plugin seems to get 100% right this extension always lets me fix it. Since I first discovered Sourcerer and what it could do it's been one of the first extensions I install on any new site. The functionality it adds to Joomla is invaluable. It is easy to use too, just drop your code between the tags and it works. Best of all even the free version is well supported by the creator.

This plug-in does it all excellently. Just install and voila, you're set to program your Website with PHP or any usual script on the fly. Highly recommended for busy programmers.

Sourcerer is one of the most essential plug-ins for Joomla. With this, I am able to utilize almost any piece of html code (either paypal or youtube, or other) and imbed it wherever it is necessary.

This is a simple plug-in that increases the value of Joomla and makes website creation, management and usage an easier process.

Peter, the developer, is very hands on and is constantly making improvements to this and other of his components/plug-ins. He upgrades constantly to match security requirements and Joomla releases.
