Add-On Type(s)



The purpose of the Early Globalvars plugin is early parsing of global template variables. You can create early-parsed global variables by editing path.php file (for EE1.x) or by using Fresh Variables add-on (for EE1.x) or using Snippets (for EE2.0+). But what should be done in case if you already have some global template variables (they are late-parsed) and found out that you need them to be parsed early? The answer is: use Early Globalvars plugin!

  1) globalvar - Required. Allows you to specify names of template global variables.
  You can stack names of template global variables using pipe character
  e.g. globalvar=“main_date_format|comment_date_format”.
  2) site - Optional. Allows you to specify site id. Default value is “1”.
  Wrap the piece of code in which global tempate variables should be parsed early with
  {exp:early_globalvars}{/exp:early_globalvars} tag pair:

{exp:early_globalvars globalvar="comment_date_format" parse="inward"}
  {comment_date format="{comment_date_format}"}

  {exp:early_globalvars} must have parse=“inward” parameter!
