Never been to TextSnippets before?

Snippets is a public source code repository. Easily build up your personal collection of code snippets, categorize them with tags / keywords, and share them with the world (or not, you can keep them private!)

Linking to Stylesheets

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="{stylesheet=static/style}" />

<link media="screen" type="text/css" href="{stylesheet=static/style}" />

Snippets Plugin

Coding to use for the Expression Engine Snippets Plugin:

In the actual pages:
{exp:snippets template="static/index"}
{page_title}Site: {title}{/page_title}

In the header include (static/index in this case):


Define them as variables in PHP for easy if/else statements. :)

Total Number of Entries for one Weblog

{exp:stats weblog="weblog1"}{total_entries}{/exp:stats}

Entry Date

{entry_date format="%F %d, %Y"}
{edit_date format="%F %d, %Y"}

More formatting options:

Display In 2-Column Table

The below can be applied to MT, EE, etc, and will display the content in a 2 column table. The EE tags below are just an example, it will work equally well if you replace it with MT, Wordpress, etc, tags.

 $set_table="0"; ?>

<table cellpadding="5" border="0">
{exp:gallery:categories gallery="{gallery_name}"}
$fs_table = $set_table +1;
if ($set_table == "1") {echo"";} ?>

Insert other tags here.

 if ($set_table == "2") {echo"";  $set_table="0";} ?>

Use PHP Inside EE Entries

You'll need the following plugins:
Allow EE Code:
Allow PHP:

Set text formatting for the field you want to use this on to "None" (Admin > Weblog Administration > Custom Weblog Fields).

Change your template by adding the Allow EE tags around the field:


Now you can use PHP inside your entries like this:

<p>Bla bla regular entry textp>

echo "This will be processed as PHP.";

CSS Switcher Code

{exp:css_switcher}<link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' media='all' href='{file}' />{/exp:css_switcher}

<form action="" method="post">
<select name="css_skin" id="css_skin">
<option value="1">Option 1option>

Code for using the CSS Switcher plugin. Insert this anywhere in a EE template where you want this to show.

Edit Link In An Entry

Without the Snippets plugin (ie, straight on the template itself):

{if member_group == "1"}
<a href="/system/index.php?C=edit&M=edit_entry&weblog_id={weblog_id}&entry_id={entry_id}" title="Edit Entry">Edit Thisa>

With the Snippets plugin (ie, included in a seperate template that gets pulled into all other templates):

{if member_group == "1"}
<a href="/system/index.php?C=edit&M=edit_entry&weblog_id=%editweblog%&entry_id=%editweblog2%" title="Edit Entry">Edit Thisa>

And use this to include the editlink template:

{exp:snippets template="static/editlink"}

Number of Entries in Galleries

All Galleries:
{exp:query sql="SELECT count(entry_id) AS count FROM exp_gallery_entries"}{count}{/exp:query}

One specific Gallery:
{exp:query sql="SELECT count(entry_id) AS count FROM exp_gallery_entries WHERE gallery_id=1"}{count}{/exp:query}

List of Stats

{exp:stats weblog="not 1|2"}
<li>Since 2001, I have posted <strong>{total_entries}strong> entries,</li>
<li>and received <strong>{total_comments}strong> comments.</li>
<li><strong>{total_guests}strong> people are currently browsing the site,</li>
<li>the most people online at the same time was <strong>{most_visitors}strong> on {most_visitor_date format="%M %d, %y"}</strong>.li>

Last Edited Entries

{exp:weblog:entries weblog="epguide" orderby="edit_date" limit="5"}

Categories For One Entry

{categories backspace="4"}<a href="{path=weblog/index}">{category_name}a> > {/categories}

List All Entries

{exp:weblog:entries weblog="weblog"}
<li><a href="{url_title_path=template/view}">{title}a></li>

Content-sensitive, so putting this on a main index page will list all entries there are, on a category page all entries in that category, and on a date archive page all entries for that month.

List All Categories

{exp:weblog:categories weblog="name" show_empty="no" id="left_nav"}
<a href="{path="template"}">{category_name}a>

Quick Cheat Sheet

DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<title>Quick Cheat Sheettitle>

"WeblogIDs" cellpadding="5">

{exp:query sql="SELECTweblog_id,blog_name,blog_title,blog_urlFROMexp_weblogsORDERBYblog_title"}

Full Weblog Name Short Name Weblog ID
{blog_title} {blog_name} {weblog_id}
"CustomFieldIDs" cellpadding="5"> "heading"> {exp:query sql="SELECTgroup_id,field_name,field_label,field_typeFROMexp_weblog_fieldsORDERBYfield_name"} {/exp:query}

Full Category Name Category ID
{cat_name} {cat_id}

This EE code will create a quick Cheat Sheet that will list all your Weblogs with their short names and IDs, all your Custom Fields with their short names, and all your Categories with their IDs. This one page will save you having to look this up in the Admin panel constantly when editing/creating templates for your site. :)
Also posted at the EEWiki:

List all Weblogs

{exp:query sql="SELECT weblog_id, blog_name, blog_title, blog_url FROM exp_weblogs WHERE weblog_id != '100' ORDER BY blog_title"}
<li><a href="{blog_url}">{blog_title}a></li>

Lists all weblogs in one installation and shows how to exclude one by example.

Category Count

{exp:query sql="SELECT count(exp_category_posts.entry_id) AS count,exp_category_posts.cat_id, exp_categories.cat_name
FROM exp_categories, exp_category_posts WHERE exp_category_posts.cat_id = exp_categories.cat_id GROUP BY exp_categories.cat_name"}

<a href="{path=weblog/view}C{cat_id}/">{cat_name}
a> ({count})


Displays a list of categories with an entry count for each category. Alternatively, you can also use this query together with the {exp:weblog:categories} tag, making the query a lot smaller:

{exp:weblog:categories weblog="weblog1"}
<a href="{path=weblog/index}">{category_name}a>
{exp:query sql="SELECT count(exp_category_posts.entry_id) AS count
 FROM exp_category_posts  WHERE exp_category_posts.cat_id =  {category_id} "}
({count} entries)

Related Entries

{exp:weblog:related_entries weblog="caps" orderby="title" sort="asc"}
<li><a href="{title_permalink="caps/view"}">{title}a></li>

Lists all entries in the same category as the one you're currently viewing.

Category Header

{exp:weblog:category_heading  weblog="weblog1"}{category_name}{/exp:weblog:category_heading}

Show the currently viewed category as a heading outside of the {weblog.entries} tag.
