A module that provides HTML Tidy and Purify capabilities

Note: This is the SS3 version of the module! Please checkout the ss24 branch for the SilverStripe 2.4 compatible version

Basic Usage

Add the module to your project, and add the appropriate extension to your data objects via your site's mysite/_config.php file

Object::add_extension('Page', 'CleanContentExtension');

You can have tidy/purify applied to Content fields when content is saved by selecting options on the Content / Cleaning tab, or use the $Clean(FieldName) option from your templates. Using $Clean on its own will by default use the Content field.

Note that for $Clean to work, you must still select the appropriate cleaning options on the Content / Clean tab.

By default, new pages have cleaning on save enabled, with HTML Tidy in effect, but not Purify. This can be changed by setting the statics in CleanContentExtension, which default as follows.

static $clean_on_save = true;
static $default_tidy = true;
static $default_purify = false;
