Add-On Type(s)



XML Decoding plugin. Converts entities into reserved XML characters. This plugin is the reverse of Rick Ellis's XML Encoding plugin.

This plugin was created to address an issue where certain WYSIWYG add-ons (Wygwam 2.1.7+ and MX Universal Editor) encoded curly brackets ( { and } ) into their XML entities: { and }. These encoded entities were not being picked up on by LG Replace, which would only trigger a replacement action when actual curly brackets were used.

What this plugin does is simply decode those XML entities back into their actual special characters, allowing LG Replace to pick up on the curly brackets once again.


{exp:xml_decode}text you want processed{/exp:xml_decode}

For example:


results in:


Which, incidentally, will actually embed the site/index template inside those <p> tags, which is silly. So don’t do that.
