Making Text in an External Plugin HTML Tag Compatible

4 months 1 week ago - 4 months 1 week ago #336459 by 4creator

I would like to share some code extracted from a CB plugin developed by an external developer.
use CBLib\Language\CBTxt;
// (Omitted)
    // get plugin params
    $plugin =  JPluginHelper::getPlugin('jevents', 'jevusers');
    if (!$plugin)
        return "";
    $jevusers_params = new JRegistry($plugin->params);

    if ($jevusers_params->get("showattending", 1))
        $tab_intro = $this->params->get('tabMessage', "JEVENTS_TAB_TEXT_DEFAULT_2");
        $tab_intro = $this->params->get('tabMessage', 'UPCOMING_EVENTS_CREATED_BY_THIS_USER_OR_THEY_AREATTENDING');
    $tab_intro = CBTxt::T($tab_intro);

In the Tab management, I have set CB_JEVENS_NOTE as the tab text parameter for this plugin. I have also set up the text for CB_JEVENS_NOTE in the Plugin management's language override.
Currently, when I input <strong>my text</strong>, the <strong> tags are being output as text. I suspect that $tab_intro = CBTxt::T($tab_intro); is the cause of this. Is it possible to make this code compatible with HTML tags?

Your issue would be after that code. You've something applying htmlspecialchars to $tab_intro before display. CBTxt::T just translates it does not remove or convert HTML in any way.
