[plugin] [ORPHAN] etz_hilite

Highlights search terms inside your pages.

Usage:

  1. Wrap the part of the page you want to highlight between <txp:etz_hilite> and </txp:etz_hilite>.
  2. Put span.etz_hilite {color: yellow;} or whatever in your CSS.

Additional options:

  • class defaults to “etz_hilite”

Known bugs/limitations:

  • Does not support multibyte encodings (including Unicode) yet.
  • Ignores quotes in search terms.
  • Only supports Google and Textpattern’s own search for the moment.

Notes:

Currently it’s of little use to me because it doesn’t support UTF-8, but it should be usefult to you that use 100% Latin scripts. I plan to extend its functionality in the future. Feedback is most appreciated.

Download version 0.1a now!

This sounds really cool. Will this work in an artilce form?

Sure, it will work anywhere you put it. I actually use mine inside an article form.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] etz_hilite

Etz,

A while back I wrote an extensible search-highlighting script (had it supporting twenty or so different search engines last I checked) that I’ve been meaning to turn into a TXP plugin; would you have any objection to my using your plugin as a basis for that? You would, of course, be credited.

That makes me sad. I wish UTF-8 were supported.

Etz: cool. I’ll try to have a first draft in about a week.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] etz_hilite

With the following changes to the final function in the code, etz_hilite will use the new HTML5 mark tag as standard, e.g. to have your search term highlighted as <mark>term</mark>, use:

<txp:etz_hilite><txp:body /></txp:etz_hilite>

If you still want your terms wrapped in <span class="hilite">term</span>, then use:

<txp:etz_hilite wraptag="span" class="hilite"><txp:body /></txp:etz_hilite>

This is the changed final function of the plugin:

function etz_hilite ($atts, $thing) {
	if (is_array($atts)) extract($atts);
	if (!(isset($wraptag))) $wraptag = "mark";
	if (!(isset($class))) {$class = "";} else {$class=' class="'.$class.'"'; }
	if (!(isset($keywords))) $keywords = etz_getkeywords();
	$output = parse($thing);

	if ($keywords != NULL) {
		$keywords_split = explode(' ', $keywords);
		foreach ($keywords_split as $etz_keyword) {
			$h = new Highlight ($etz_keyword,'<'.$wraptag.$class.'>{keyword}</'.$wraptag.'>');
			$output = $h->process($output);
		}
	}
	return $output;
}
