lib-plugins hack for better autotag support

The current lib-plugins.php function PLG_replaceTags breaks when you add autotags and the first parameter contains a ":". So here is a hack to fix that so you can have autotags like the following:

[oslink:http://www.somewhere.com Some Where]

Would then be in html:
Text Formatted Code

<a href="http://www.somewhere.com>Some Where</a>

 

Just FYI: oslink = off site link

Changes in lib-plugins.php, function PLG_replaceTags
Text Formatted Code

$parms = explode (':', $parms[0]);

// START NEW CODE
if ( $parms[2] == '' ) {
                                $p_parms1 = $parms[1];
                        }
                        else {
                                $p_parms1 = $parms[1] . ':' . $parms[2];
                        }
// END NEW CODE
                    $newtag = array (
                        'module'    => $module,
                        'tag'       => $moduletag,
                        'tagstr'    => $tag,
                        'startpos'  => $start_pos,
                        'length'    => $taglength,
                        'parm1'     => $p_parms1, // Replace with new variable
                        'parm2'     => $label
                    );

 


So just after the explode you will want to add the new code, and don't forget to update the $newtag arrary with $p_parms1.

Now you need to add your autotag to the core in function PLG_collectTags
Text Formatted Code

$autolinkModules = array ('story' => 'geeklog','oslink' => 'geeklog','event' => 'geeklog');

 


Next the code needs to be added to substitute the tag with html in function PLG_replaceTags

Text Formatted Code

if ($autotag['module'] == 'geeklog') {
                $url = '';
                $linktext = $autotag['parm2'];
// START NEW CODE
                if ($autotag['tag'] == 'oslink') {
                        $autotag['parm1'] = COM_applyFilter ($autotag['parm1']);
                        $content = str_replace($autotag['tagstr'],'<a href="' . $autotag['parm1'] .'">' . $linktext . '</a>',$content);
                }
// END NEW CODE

 


Thats it.

Just curious but wouldn't it be much easier to just use
Text Formatted Code
[oslink:www.somewhere.com Some Where]
 

then have your plugin add the http:// stuff to it?

Yes I am mental.

What if the link is:

ftp:// or https://

Then you have to have two more autotags.

Also when cut-n-pasting links, usually the http:// is part of the link already.

Oh that makes sense I never even thought of the ftp:// thing. Thanks for clearing that up, did you submit a patch so your hack can be included in the core?

I've been trying to implement this to my own plugins but with no success. I've tried it several times and here is the result...

in the story, I type:

[go:http://www.feb28.com Testing]

(I'm using "go" instead of "oslink")

This is what it's returning:

href="http://www.feb28.com">http://www.feb28.com Testing

and the html code looks like this:
Text Formatted Code
<a href="">href="http://www.feb28.com">http://www.feb28.com</a> Testing</a>
 


It looks like everythings in the wrong order and I have a doubled /a tag, but I can't figure out where I went wrong. Any ideas?

Here is my lib-plugin code for that section with your hacks:
Text Formatted Code
                    $parms = explode (':', $parms[0]);
// START NEW CODE
if ( $parms[2] == '' ) {
                                $p_parms1 = $parms[1];
                        }
                        else {
                                $p_parms1 = $parms[1] . ':' . $parms[2];
                        }
// END NEW CODE
                    $newtag = array (
                        'module'    => $module,
                        'tag'       => $moduletag,
                        'tagstr'    => $tag,
                        'startpos'  => $start_pos,
                        'length'    => $taglength,
                        'parm1'     => $p_parms1, // Replace with new variable
                        'parm2'     => $label
                    );
                    $tags[] = $newtag;

                } else {
                    /* Error tags do not match - return with no changes */
                    return $content . $LANG32['32'];
                }
                $prev_offset = $offset;
                $offset = $end_pos;
            } else {
                $prev_offset = $end_pos;
                $end_pos = $strlen;
                $offset = $strlen;
            }
        }
    }

    // If we have found 1 or more AutoLink tag
    if (count ($tags) > 0) {       // Found the [tag] - Now process them all
        foreach ($tags as $autotag) {
            $function = 'plugin_autotags_' . $autotag['module'];
            if ($autotag['module'] == 'geeklog') {
                $url = '';
                $linktext = $autotag['parm2'];
// START NEW CODE
                if ($autotag['tag'] == 'go') {
                        $autotag['parm1'] = COM_applyFilter ($autotag['parm1']);
                        $content = str_replace($autotag['tagstr'],'<a href="' . $autotag['parm1'] .'">' . $linktext . '</a>',$content);
                }
// END NEW CODE

 


Any ideas?

After playing with it for a while, it seems to only allow a single character after http://

so I can have http://w or http://f and it will work fine, but as soon as it becomes http://ww or http://fe it fails and creates what I just posted.

Does that make any sense to anybody?
