Prevents words from being longer than a certain length

{exp:word_safe length="25" option="breakup"}




  • length - Maximum character length for a word (default is 25).
  • option - What to do with words that exceed the maximum length.
    • option="breakup" - Breaks up word with spaces. No chunk will ever exceed the maximum length.
    • option="remove" - Removes the word
    • option="shorten" (default) - Removes any characters after the maximum length has been reached
  • safe_pre (y/n) - If set to 'y' (default), any content in a
     tag are exempt from the maximum word length rule. If set to 'n', then the contents of a 
     tag are treated like any other content.
  • safe_urls (y/n) - If set to 'y' (default), the content in and tags are ignored and thus the URLs are safe from the maximum word length. If set to 'n', then the contents of the and tags will be treated likes words.
