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+

Part of my standard Joomla build - don't install sites without it now!

I come up with new uses for it every day at the moment, and since it's now out for 1.7, it's full speed ahead for making rereplacer magic in 1.7!

the best of all plugin I use in JOOMLA.
I can add function in others components, modules or plugin without knowing even 1 line of thoses. I just need to read the source file of the page.

I refuse to develop with JOOMLA 1.7 only because this plugin is not ready for J1.7.

I'm in hurry to find the REREPLACER 1.7 available.

I thanks Peter for all components, modules and plugins he creates for JOOMLA

NONUMBER is the best

sometimes, Great Things CAN be Free and ReReplacer falls under Great Free Thing. I have been using ReReplacer for some time now on J15 website and now, I am in need for a ReReplacer version that works in J17. I am waiting patiently but I cannot guarantee I can wait for a long time. Where is my ReReplacer for J17?. This is one of the best of the best extension and I want you to know right now and right here that 'YOU CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT THIS EXTENSION'. Please note that I am not yelling here but just trying to get my point across.

One more time, where is my ReReplacer for J16?. Please hurry!!!

I found out this extension on a forum which people discussing Internet Explorer error : " HTML Parsing Error: Unable to modify the parent container element before the child element is closed (KB927917)"

I used this extension to replace "domready" expression which causes problem in Internet Explorer 7 and 8 with expression "load" to solve the problem.It worked !!!
This extension rocks.It is excellent extension.
Thank you developer.

Hi, I have been searching for a week to work out how to remove {loadposition} tags from my rss feed. I saw your extension and gave it a try and within 5 minutes my problem was solved. I can't thank you enough. I'm very grateful.

Today i realized that i haven't yet wrote a single review for this man's awesome extensions, and i use them literally on a daily basis!

My country officially uses two alphabets, Latin and Cyrillic one.

ReReplacer spared me from trouble of adding every article twice to our website, by automatically replacing Latin characters with Cyrillic ones.

After i got an idea for using this component for this problem, i contacted Peter and asked him how could i achieve this, and he has put me on the right direction in a matter of minutes.

I created an xml file with character replacement list, created a link which sets a simple cookie when clicked on, and set the Publishing Assignment PHP field to read the cookie, and voila!

We have thousands and thousands of articles on our website and i can only imagine what a pain it would be to have to add two versions of articles manually each time.

As i wrote already on another Peter's extension review, the support you get from him is unmatched by any commercial extension i've used until now!

Thanks man!

Brilliant, perfect, wonderful!

I use it for replacing/hiding email and telephone numbers in kunena posts.

But you can replace anything, with anything, in any part of Joomla :)

It's a must have in every joomla installation!

We have been converting a very large old site to joomla. One of the problems we had to address was adding acronyms to a large number of pages in order to make the pages 508 compliant. This component has handled the job handily and will reduce development time for future pages. Many thanks to the developer.

This saved me soo much time and its free. Easy to use, can turn on and off. This definitely helps for those boring administrative jobs that come with being a developer.

Thanks very much
