ReReplacer ComponentPlugin

ReReplacer - search and replace in your websites output.

ReReplacer is a Joomla! component and system plugin that enables you to replace anything in your Joomla! site’s output with whatever you want.

ReReplacer will search the text (html) of your pages for your search request and replace it with what you have told it to do.
These replacements are on the fly. That means they are not permanent. They are done every time you request a web page in your site.

This gives you great possibilities and power to manipulate the output of your site.

You have the ability to use powerful regular expressions to search and replace. This opens up endless possibilities. You can do virtually anything with ReReplacer.

You can use ReReplacer for all kinds of stuff like:
    ★ Add/remove/change elements in the html structure of your site
          This can help you add extra ways to style elements or change the layout.
    ★ Create your own plugin-like tags
          You can use quick-codes and replace it with a long bit of text or html code. Like:
                {copyright}, !contact_details!, [terms], __FOOTER__, etc.
          Via regular expressions you can even make these dynamic, like:
                {youtube 123abcABC}, {twitter}nonumber_nl{/twitter}, etc.
    ★ Clean up unwanted html
          Like: comment tags, meta-generator tag, unwanted copyright code from other extensions, etc.
    ★ Replace simple words
          Like: replacing the company name (for mirror sites), correct common spelling errors in your content, replace bad words with ***, etc.
    ★ Replace "Domready" with "load" for IE compatibility of your scripts
    ★ Replace your image (media) urls with a CDN url.

ReReplacer does not touch your database. The replacements are not permanent. So you cannot use ReReplacer to replace stuff for good. You can use my other extension DB Replacer for that.

It also does not touch the files. You cannot use ReReplacer to replace stuff in the (php) files of your site.

How to use it:

NoNumber extensions require php 5.3+

ReReplacer is just so powerful by replacing something by something else. The replace operations can also be limited to certain browsers, operating systems, categories, menu items, templates, articles, views, months, seasons, users, countries, urls, components, ... countless options. Plus: If you need help, you can count on the support. Plus: This extension is really mature and stable.

Like all other NoNumber extensions, this one has made my life so much more simpler. I installed it on my site to insert break tags in my menu title, I went into the backend, said, replace [br] with , and guess what, it worked.

I'd give you 10/5, if only it were allowed ;)

I have used this extension to apply html tags and css styling to an imported hikashop csv file, styling over 200 product pages at the same time. - brilliant.

NoNumber's ReReplacer is an amazing piece of software! I'm constantly finding new uses for it on all of my sites. And the support is fast and efficient. I received a response within an hour of posting to the forum with a problem, even when it said there might be delays due to vacation. You can't go wrong with ANY of Peter's extensions or plugins, period.

I did try a couple of BBCode extension but none was as easy to set up then ReReplacer. It was surprising to simply separate the entry with a comma , that's the secret of the flexibility of this plugin! Rather then having a whole macro that will be replace by HTML (with all the typo that it can't handle), here you get something straightforward and easy to set up!
Many thanks!

Not only do NoNumber extensions provide great functionality (even the free versions), but the support I received (FREE) from NoNumber for the FREE version of ReReplacer was absolutely first rate.

I cannot recommend more highly either this extension or the developer NoNumber.

All NoNumber extensions are great, but this "atomic swiss army knife" is absolutely indispensable in my life as a web developer.

The only limit to its uses is my imagination. In my last assignment I'm using it to allow one of my customers to use a specially designed markup language for writing its "articles".

Last but not least, Peter is a really friendly person who's "customer service" is second to none.

This is very good extension for filtering the bad word.

This extension is very easy to install and learn, and yet very, very powerful. In less then five minutes I read the (very intuitive) instructions and changed all specific words in the whole site to appropriate links.

I used this component as I wanted another component to display emails as links in the Admin area. With a small hack to the other component this was possible; using the regular expression feature.
The uses of this component are endless. Another I can think of would be to use it for making keywords into links. A great extension. Many thanks.

I really like this tool!

Just a few examples:
1. Every user has a different name for a product. One uses lower case, the next one uppercase, and a third one just has typing errors.
With this tool I fetch all the different names and correct them to ONE, the original product name.

2. On some products there is a special discount, or users complain they do not understand what the product is for. With this tool, I just substitute
"product name" with
"product name (GET 10% off only this week)"


"product name (A powerful tool to make your life easier!)"

I am sure you find so much more ways to use it! It offers a lot of possibilities!

I have used two applications from No-Number, Sourcer and Rereplacer.
In both cases, when I have had a small issue that needed to be addressed, in both cases due to my lack of understanding about the app, Peter's response was prompt and spot on, allowing me to get on with my work.
I recommend any of No-Number's apps. for service and performance!

This extension is not simply a way for you to change all references of "Dog" to "Cat". It is so much more. With an upgrade to the Pro version, I'm able to use this program as a way to hide content unless you are a subscriber by simply adding a custom tag to my content.
I have found that this program has already replaced at least 4 other extensions.
On top of that, Peter (the developer) is so helpful when it comes to support. He took the time to fix the issue I was having very promptly. It's no wonder that I have purchased subscriptions to 6 of his extensions.
