Introduction

Replace

This plugin enables you to reuse information snippets through your website.
Think of infomation pieces like a phone number or a VAT-nr. As soon as you include these information in more than one content element (article/module) you have to remember where you used them every time they change.

  • Get this

This is gone now!

Simply create an article that holds all these information in one place. (The legacy way to store the variables within the plugin is still in there.)

Defining a variable is as easy as writing it.

myvar="stored piece of information"
mail="mymail@domain.tld"

Now place these information across your articles or modules using the simple and common curly bracket syntax.

My article shows now this {global}myvar{/gloabl}.

This will evaluate to:
My artcile show now this stored piece of information.

I hope you like it.

Just like Lars, I went looking for a plugin to do this trick and could find nothing - well, except this, of course.



To me, this is the perfect Joomla plugin. It does one simple, useful job - uncluttered and straight forward without having a thousand parameters that just get in the way.



Lars is also wide awake and available and has reacted within minutes to a couple of suggestions I had and is even kind enough to go and see if he can get them working!



Very impressed. I look forward to the new version!
