Filters

Book Cover
"'The good news is that Drupal uses prebuilt routines called filters to make data entry easy and efficient. Filters perform text manipulations such as making URLs clickable, converting line breaks to <p> and <br /> tags, and even stripping out malicious HTML.... Filters are almost always a single action such as "strip out all hyperlinks," "add a random image to this post," or even "translate this into pirate-speak"'
  VanDyk, John K., and Matt Westgate. Pro Drupal Development. Apress. © 2007. Books24x7.

Besides the core HTML filter, some modules either solely or as an extra feature provide filters.

Most in-line filters use a [filtername:argument] sort of syntax.

Some filters we use:

  • Collapse Text
    • [ collapse collapsed] <h1-6>Title</h1-h6> Content
  • Insert View
  • Insert Node
    • Example :
  • Insert Node
    • Example : Node #1242 is being inserted twice by InsertNode. Breaking the recursive loop here.
  • SWF Tools / Flash Node Filter
    • Used to embed flash files easily in a page
    • [  flashnode|nid=815]
    • You are missing some Flash content that should appear here! Perhaps your browser cannot display it, or maybe it did not initialise correctly.
