Re: etc_query: all things Textpattern

If you don’t mind using (a very useful) plugin, you can do it more simply with smd_wrap.

See Example 7 in the docs for the auto_excerpt case. If you wrap that additionally in <txp:if_excerpt><txp:excerpt /><txp:else /> … </txp:if_excerpt>, then your own excerpt will be used if it exists first.

@bloke: you have a v0.3 of this plugin but it’s not available online in compiled form. I’ll see if I can find mine… It is now, and you can find it here (thanks bloke :-).

@Karsten: If you let us know which other plugins you are needing to update, we may be able to advise…

Re: etc_query: all things Textpattern

@jakob THANKS

this is briljant, and does exactly what I want:

<txp:smd_wrap_all transform=“strip_tags, cut|35w|&hellip;”>
<txp:body />
</txp:smd_wrap_all>

Simply gives the first 35 words of the body text, that was what I needed!

As for other plugins that stopped working: rah_textile_bar

This was a useful tool that added buttons to apply textile, very convenient to use! But is doesn’t seem to do anything any more. If I come across more plugins that have failed I will let you know.

Re: etc_query: all things Textpattern

Not that I’m jealous, but now (4.8-dev) you can get it in core:

<txp:body escape="tags" trim="/^\W*((?:\w+\W+){35})\w.*$/s" replace="$1&hellip;" />

Oleg,
You never cease to amaze me! This is way beyond what I expected txp to do out of the box!!! I cannot even pretend that I understand the syntax, but I am incredibly impressed.

We should add the above in the docs under the body and excerpt as it seems to be of use for many.

Re: etc_query: all things Textpattern

It’s brilliant. I’ll add that example to the docs for the excerpt tag.

Textpattern is a magic wand, but the wizardry is yours. A quick regex introduction will completely demystify the trick.

Wouldn’t it fit better as new global replace attribute example (since we have to document it anyway)?

Sure, we can add something similar there too. Or maybe another type of example. Just thought it’d be nice for people who are looking to excerpt an article to see there are a few ways to do it without having to use the tag itself.

Re: etc_query: all things Textpattern

Question: for documentation purposes, does replace only work to replace stuff matched by trim or can it be used on its own?

Hmm, what could it replace without trim? If you see…

Edit: probably replace is misleading. What is the opposite of trim?

I figured as much. Just wasn’t sure if the regex syntax could be used like sed with /find/replace/g. But that’s probably pushing it!

I agree that trim/replace isn’t the most obvious pairing but can’t think of anything else.
