Re: Shortcodes (as seen in rah_beacon)

@etc

Oleg, now that you have fully enabled short-tags, one-and-half Q’s …

1/ Is it expected that the form name can’t contain hyphens? I was testing this out today. The following works fine:

<txp:output_form form="xyz-image" id="xx" />

but the equivalent fails (silently):

<txp::xyz-image id="xx" />

rename the form to xyz_image works.

2/ In your checkin, I see you added a reset attribute to the @<txp:yield /> tag, if I understand the code correctly. Can you explain the usage? (like philwareham upthread, I had so far not much understanding of that tag, I need to add).


Where is that emoji for a solar powered submarine when you need it ?

This half-ready commit is a bit forced, I was not able to sync with dev otherwise. The work continues, so don’t yet rely on it too much.

Historically (before 4.6), <txp:abc_tag /> was internally transformed into abc_tag() function call. Since abc-tag is not a valid function name, hyphens were forbidden. Now we can allow them, but it would require more discipline re tag registration. Not sure about it…

It’s still in work, it seemed useful to me, but now I don’t remember how :-)

Edit: and many thanks for testing, btw!

Right, just playing with it on the local server , exploring possibilities. Sure it offers possibilities to optimise my forms used to insert images, etc in the body of an article.

Oh, now that you mention it, I remember that limitation. I’m fine with it; probably just need documenting when those short-tags are finalised.
