strip

This replaces all repeated spaces, newlines and tabs with a single space, or with the supplied string.

Note

If you want to strip blocks of template text, use the built-in {strip} function.

Example 5.19. strip

<?php
$smarty->assign('articleTitle', "Grandmother of\neight makes\t    hole in one.");
$smarty->display('index.tpl');
?>

   

Where template is:

{$articleTitle}
{$articleTitle|strip}
{$articleTitle|strip:'&nbsp;'}

   

Will output:

Grandmother of
eight makes        hole in one.
Grandmother of eight makes hole in one.
Grandmother&nbsp;of&nbsp;eight&nbsp;makes&nbsp;hole&nbsp;in&nbsp;one.
