Stringer is useful for manipulating text/strings in different ways and allows you to access and modify strings using PHP while not enabling PHP in templates.

1) Striptags - Remove all HTML tag from your content

There are several parameters you can use to control how the content is truncated.

These options are:

chars_start = “”    // Start char to limit number of character
chars           = “”    // Limit by number of characters
words         = “”      // Limit by number of words
cutoff         = “”    // Limit by a specific cutoff string
append       = “”    // String to append to the end of the excerpt
allow_tags   = “”    // HTML tags you want to allow

{exp:stringer:striptags allow_tags="<p>|<em>|<strong>"}
{exp:stringer:striptags allow_tags="<a>|<blockquote>|<p>" append="..." words="50"}
{exp:stringer:striptags allow_tags="<a>" cutoff="<!-- More -->"  append="..."}
{exp:stringer:striptags allow_tags="<p>" chars_start="10" chars="50" append="..."}

2) Tags - Allow All HTML tag but Remove particular HTML tags from your content.

There is one parameters for remove particular tags.

remove_tags   = “”  // HTML tag you want to remove

{exp:stringer:tags remove_tags="<a>|<blockquote>|<p>"}

{exp:stringer:uppercase}this string is uppercase.{/exp:stringer:uppercase}

{exp:stringer:lowercase}THIS STRING IS LOWERCASE{/exp:stringer:lowercase}

{exp:stringer:uppercasefirst}this string first character upppercase{/exp:stringer:uppercasefirst}

{exp:stringer:charlength}number of characters in a string.{/exp:stringer:charlength}

{exp:stringer:wordlength}string total words length{/exp:stringer:wordlength}

{exp:stringer:find_replace find="text|and" replace="string|or"}Multiple text find and replace{/exp:stringer:find_replace}

{exp:stringer:find_replace find="|" replace="/"}slash|replace|{/exp:stringer:find_replace}

{exp:stringer:numberformat decimals="2" dec_point="." thousands_sep=","}1234567890{/exp:stringer:numberformat}

{exp:stringer:hash algo="decode"}VGhpcyBpcyBhbiBlbmNvZGVkIHN0cmluZyc={/exp:stringer:hash} - base64 decode

{exp:stringer:hash algo="md5"}password{/exp:stringer:hash}

    Street: {string1}<br>
    City: {string2}<br>
    State: {string3}<br>
