self closing slash in html elements

Thanks so much for updating textile and the txp tags to remove the self closing slash from html elements such as meta, br, img, etc.

What I’m not sure of, is how we can update our current Body_html column in the textpattern table (in our case 1,966 posts), to comply to the new html standards.

Re: self closing slash in html elements

There’s sed_textile_upgrade which will retextile all your posts. It takes a little while to work through all the posts, especially on a large site.

While it makes a copy of your previous textpattern table for safekeeping, please do make a database backup before you start.

Unfortunately, libxml2 parser used in php dom does not (yet) implement html5. Don’t complain if etc_query stops working :-)

I was actually thinking of using that, but it would mean that articles would need to be parsed each time. I was trying to find a more permanent solution.

Thanks so much. That’s going to be a time saver!
