Joomla! Plugin for insecable spaces in content

Here is a little plugin for Jooma 1.5.x which allows to replace automatically secable spaces by insecable spaces in an article.

This plugin is especially for those that are obsessed by typography rules. According to these rules, many characters must not be broke by a line.

Here are the replaces characters :

  1. word :
  2. « word »
  3. word ?
  4. word !
  5. cash $
  6. pourcentage %
  7. slash / word

The plugin inserts the HTML entity   instead of secable spaces, for all characters above. When you write your article, you must write a normal space, else the plugin wouldn’t recognize that you wish to insert insecable spaces.

This plugin was wrote for french rules; I have no idea for english ones… Note that in Quebec, you must not insert any space before question and exclamation marks; I included them because because people from France would need it.

You may see this plugin in action in this blog. It’s not a big thing, but it’s quite useful to me.

    This plugin will be perfect if it was running also when an artcile is just displayed with the “Read More” link.. any update schedule ? (and handling of ” ;” BTW)
    Thank you very much to make Joomla! really internationalized. 😉

    Hi Eric, thanks for your comment. Yes, updates are planned, I wish to include more rules and extend it to specific french, french-canadian, english-canadian and US English rules. If you wish to suggest things and help me out with this (rules, etc.) don’t hesitate to contact me.

    Guy, was wondering if you could put a little more context around where and how to use this. What does it mean to “replace automatically secable spaces by insecable spaces”? Maybe some visuals could help? Thanks!

    Polls also showed that though only 39 percent of people believed that the economy was improving, around half of Americans blamed President George W. Bush for the tenuous situation, and not Obama.

    For those who believe our leading politicians are incapable of feeling embarrassed, there was an embarrassing confirmation last month when our prime minister responded to questions of a CNN interviewer. The prime minister seemed nervous and his voice faltered as he answered the questions thrown at him. Some say it was nervousness, others believe it was the problem of language comprehension. Whatever the reasons, he blurted out some really strange things.
