wordwrap

Wraps a string to a column width, the default is 80. As an optional second parameter, you can specify a string of text to wrap the text to the next line, the default is a carriage return "\n". By default, wordwrap will attempt to wrap at a word boundary. If you want to cut off at the exact character length, pass the optional third parameter as TRUE. This is equivalent to the PHP wordwrap() function.

Parameter Position Type Required Default Description
1 integer No 80 This determines how many columns to wrap to.
2 string No \n This is the string used to wrap words with.
3 boolean No FALSE This determines whether or not to wrap at a word boundary (FALSE), or at the exact character (TRUE).

Example 52. wordwrap



<?php

$smarty
->assign('articleTitle',
                
"Blind woman gets new kidney from dad she hasn't seen in years."
               
);

?>

   

Where template is


{$articleTitle}

{$articleTitle|wordwrap:30}

{$articleTitle|wordwrap:20}

{$articleTitle|wordwrap:30:"<br />\n"}

{$articleTitle|wordwrap:26:"\n":true}
