Simple and extremely handy. I had some parse-order trouble were Trimmer was acting on tags before they were parsed (thereby removing the closing brace) but found that wrapping the Trimmer tag pair in a {exp:member:custom_profile_data} tag pair (with no parameters set) solved the problem.

This add-on does exactly what it says and is very easy to use. Was pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to do what I needed to do, found this and solved my problem.

Does what it is supposed to do, and does it with no fuss—gotta like that!
