Add-On Type(s)



This plugin allows you to change the template type on the fly. Useful if you use a single template with logic to either display entries or rss feeds.

Allows you to change the template type/page type of a template on the fly. Originally built to allow template logic to control whether the page is a normal web page or an rss feed.
Include the single tag (no closing tag) in a template when it’s template type should change.

If you have logic inside a template that can show either a web page or an rss feed, the {exp:rss:feed} tag will output

at the top of the page. This plugin allows you to change the template type (for instance, to RSS) on the fly, and output the correct headers, etc.

{exp:page_type:rss} changes the template type to RSS feed ({exp:page_type:feed} is an alias).

{exp:page_type:html} changes the template type to Web page ({exp:page_type:web} is an alias).

{exp:page_type:css} changes the template type to CSS.

{exp:page_type:js} changes the template type to JavaScript.

{exp:page_type:xml} changes the template type to XML.

Did exactly what I needed it to, although documentation needs to be changed to say exp:bms_page_type as the tag has been renamed!
