Introduction

Authoring & Content, Replace, Article Elements, Coding & Scripts Integration

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! - Especially with this all new version.

Simply create an article to store variables or use the build-in variable editor. To unflexible? Host your variables on your cloud storage and mount external resources as variable vault and if this is even not enought flexibility global variables now allowes you to create requests (POST/GET) for content including a resource specific cache setup/management.

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.

{{mail}} or {global}mail{/global} will resolve in your variable content while the information gets rendered.

I hope you like it.

If you have any requests or problems, don't hesitate to contact me.

P.S. This version is for Joomla 3.4.1+ ONLY! Since there were several problemes with the "repeatable" config elements you should make sure you are on the latest Joomla version.


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!
