Add-On Type(s)



Copee Pastee is a simple cell type for FF Matrix, which outputs a plain text {whatever-x} within your matrix row, where ‘x’ is the row count, and ‘whatever’ is whatever you want, which makes it easier to create "needles" when using LG Replace with a textarea to insert images, etc.

See this video at Vimeo called “ExpressionEngine HowTo: FF Matrix + LG TinyMCE + imgsizer + LG Replace”:, which outlines how to use “LG Replace”: to insert images into a textarea. There is further discussion about this method on the “Howto: FF Matrix + LG Replace + LG TinyMCE + imgsizer + LG LiveLook”: EE forum post. Copee Pastee essentially automates making the LG Replace “needles”.

Very handy little add-on. Enables clients to easily add video URLs or third party site embed codes in matrix fields and then just paste in the copee pastee placeholder tag shown in the matrix row into a wysiwyg content field.
