disable XML information in output

Tuesday 09 July 2013 2:42:18 pm - 3 replies


I am rendering content information in a twig template using ez_render_field(). In the output there are always xml information I don't want to have like

<div class="ezxmltext-field">

<p>This is my body field of an article</p>


The <div> tag is added automatically when I render the content field.

Do you have an idea how i can generally disable these xml outputs in eZ5?

Edit: I found it: You can edit the information in

Hi !

Editing vendors is bad ! Really bad ! happy.gif Emoticon

To do the same thing, you can also override that template by defining this config :

         - {template: MyBundle:fields:general_content_fields.html.twig, priority: 0}

Then, il a file at YourBundle/Resources/views/fields/general_content_fields.html.twig :

{% extends "EzPublishCoreBundle::content_fields.html.twig" %}
{% block ez[type]_field %} {# e.g. ezxmltext_field #}
<span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>{# Your override (you can use the vendors file for help on how to) #}
{% endblock %}

Hey Pierre,

thx a lot for your answer. I made an override rule now and it works great. I eliminated most additional xml-tags, but couldn't find a place where the

<p> Tags of xml-textfields are added in the content_fields.html.twig file.


I found the file, where all the <p> tags for those are added in the file


in this code block:


<xsl:template match="paragraph">
        <xsl:when test="( ul | ol | table ) or (name(..)='li')">
        <xsl: otherwise><p><xsl:apply-templates/></p></xsl: otherwise>


It's not possible to simply delete the <p> tag there. When it is removed, the hole content doesn't appear anymore. Additional tags, surrounding the <p> tag are possible. I am searching for a way to eliminate this <p> tag and to override this file instead of changing it directly under vendor.
