Tutorial for Dummy Content

There is a Free and a Pro version of Dummy Content.
The parts in this tutorial that only concern the Pro version will be marked with: Pro only

Introduction

Dummy Content is an editor button and system plugin (Joomla extension) that helps you place random dummy text into your article. Or in any other content item that has an editor, like Custom HTML Modules, category descriptions, 3rd party content, ...

Content or Tags

Popup

Dummy Content can place dummy text into your article via 2 methods.

Content

First method is that it simply places the dummy text directly into your article. You can then save the article and the content is in there.

Tags

But you can also simply insert a tag into your content: {dummy}

Dummy Content will replace that tag in the frontend with a dynamically generated dummy text based on the settings in the Dummy Content system plugin.

Content types

You have the option to insert different types of dummy content either directly or via the tag.

  • Kitchen Sink
    The Kitchen Sink is a mash-up of the other available content types. So it will display a random number of titles, paragraphs, lists, email addresses and images (images only available in the pro version).
  • Paragraphs
    A given number of paragraphs, with a random number of sentences and words.
  • Sentences
    A given number of sentences, with a random number words.
  • Words
    A given number of words.
  • List
    An ordered or unordered list with a given number of list items (or random amount).
  • Title
    A given number of words in title case.
  • Email
    An email address consisting of dummy words for the part before and after the @ sign.
  • Image Pro only
    An image with the given width and height. The image will be generated by one of the online dummy image services. See under 'Images' for further explanation.

Tag

You can place a {dummy} anywhere you can enter content in Joomla.

Dummy Content will replace that tag in the frontend with a dynamically generated dummy text based on the settings in the Dummy Content system plugin.

But you can overrule pretty much any setting inside the tag to make it output what you want.

The editor button will generate the appropriate tag according to the settings in the editor button popup.

Here is an explanation of all the available types and settings you can place in the tag to overrule the default settings (set in the Dummy Content system plugin):

  • Kitchen Sink
    {dummy kitchensink}
  • Paragraphs
    {dummy p="2"} or {dummy paragraphs="2"} for 2 paragraphs, {dummy p="5"} for 5 paragraphs, etc.
  • Sentences
    {dummy s="10"} or {dummy sentences="10"} for 10 sentences, {dummy s="20"} for 20 sentences, etc.
  • Words
    {dummy w="100"} or {dummy words="100"} for 100 words, {dummy w="200"} for 200 words, etc.
  • List
    {dummy l="random"} or {dummy list="random"} for a list with 2 to 10 list items, {dummy l="5" listtype="ul"} for an unordered list with 5 list items, {dummy l="3" listtype="ol"} for an ordered list with 3 list items, etc.
  • Title
    {dummy t="5"} or {dummy title="5"} for 5 words in title case, {dummy t="10"} for 10 words in title case, etc.
  • Email
    {dummy e} or {dummy email} for an email address.
  • Image Pro only
    {dummy i} or {dummy image} for an image. See under 'Images' for further explanation

Word Lists Pro only

By default Dummy Content will use random words from the famous Lorem Ipsum text to generate the different texts.

The Pro version however, offers you a bunch of alternative word lists to choose from.

You can set a word list as default in the Dummy Content system plugin settings. But you can also override the default setting via the {dummy} tag using wordlist="...".

Here a list of the available alternative word lists and an example of the text it can generate:

  • Arabic
  • Bacon Ipsum
  • Baseball Ipsum
  • Bavaria Ipsum
  • Beer Ipsum
  • Bowie Ipsum
  • Cheese Ipsum
  • Corporate Ipsum
  • Cupcake Ipsum
  • Cyrillic
  • Esperanto
  • Fishier Ipsum
  • Gangsta Ipsum
  • Gibberish Ipsum
  • Greek
  • Hebrew
  • Hindi
  • Hipster Ipsum
  • Interlingua
  • L33tspeak
  • Lorem Ipsum
  • Luxembourgish
  • Pommy Ipsum
  • Quenya
  • Slovio
  • Sona
  • Space Ipsum
  • Tokipona
  • Volapük
  • Web 2.0 Ipsum
  • What? Nothing!

See below for examples

Custom Word Lists

Want to add your own Word List?
Just add a simple .txt file to the folder plugins/system/dummycontent/src/wordlists

Then in that file you can place each phrase (word, sentence or even a complete paragraph) on it's own line. So the file contains an enter-separated list.
You can look at the contents of the other Word List files as an example.

Words and short phrases should be lowercase (unless you want to force an uppercase, for instance with the first letter of names).
Sentences and paragraphs should end with a period or other ending character.

For instance, if you want to have a custom word list with a bunch of words and sentences concerning 'Startrek', you can create a file:
plugins/system/dummycontent/src/wordlists/startrek.txt

The content of that startrek.txt file could look like:

Starship Enterprise
Shields up!
Damage report?
I recommend we transfer power to phasers and arm the photon torpedoes.
Something strange on the detector circuit.
The weapons must have disrupted our communicators.
gravity
atmosphere
hydrogen-carbon helix patterns
... etc ...

Diacritical Marks Pro only

With the Pro version you can randomly add diacritical marks to letters.

You can set a language (set of diacritical marks) as default in the Dummy Content system plugin settings. But you can also override the default setting via the {dummy} tag using diacritics=.

Here a list of the available languages to choose from:

  • Czech: á č ď é ě í ň ó ř š ť ú ů ý ž
  • Danish: å æ é ø
  • Dutch: é ë ï ó ö ü
  • Esperanto: ĉ ĝ ĥ ĵ ŝ ŭ
  • Finnish: ä å ö
  • French: à â æ ç é è ê ë ï î ô œ ù û ü ÿ
  • German: ä ö ü
  • Hungarian: á é í ö ó ő ü ú ű
  • Icelandic: á æ ð é í ó ö ú ý
  • Italian: à è é ì ò ó ù
  • Maori: ā ē ī ō ū
  • Norwegian: å æ â é è ê ø ó ò ô
  • Polish: ą ć ę ł ń ó ś ź ż
  • Portuguese: ã á â à ç é ê í õ ó ô ú ü
  • Romanian: ă â î ș ş ţ ț
  • Russian: а б в г д е ё ж з и й к л м н о п р с т у ф х ц ч ш щ ы э ю я
  • Spanish: á é í ñ ó ú ü
  • Swedish: ä å é ö
  • Turkish: ç ğ ı İ ı ö ş ü
  • Welsh: â ê î ô û ŵ ŷ ä ë ï ö ü ẅ ÿ á é í ó ú ẃ ý à è ì ò ù ẁ ỳ

See below for examples

Images Pro only

In the Pro version of Dummy Content you can also generate dummy images.

There are a range of online dummy image services you can choose from. Each have different options, like text overlays, photo categories, colour scheme, foreground and background colours.
