Examples for Sourcerer

Here are some simple examples of how to place code with Sourcerer.

HTML tags

Code

{source}<span style="color:red">This text should be red!</span>{/source}

Result

This text should be red!

HTML tags (with double square brackets)

If your editor has problems saving tags entered in the WYSIWYG view, and strips these upon saving, then you can use the double bracket syntax for tags.
So [[tag]] instead of <tag>.

{source}[[span style="color:red"]]This text should be red![[/span]]{/source}

This text should be red!

{source}
<script type="text/javascript">
    document.write('This text is placed through <strong>JavaScript</strong>!');
</script>
{/source}

<?php
    echo 'This text is placed through <strong>PHP</strong>!';
?>
