truncate

This truncates a variable to a character length, the default is 80. As an optional second parameter, you can specify a string of text to display at the end if the variable was truncated. The characters in the string are included with the original truncation length. By default, truncate will attempt to cut off at a word boundary. If you want to cut off at the exact character length, pass the optional third parameter of TRUE.

Parameter Position Type Required Default Description
1 integer No 80 This determines how many characters to truncate to.
2 string No ... This is a text string that replaces the truncated text. Its length is included in the truncation length setting.
3 boolean No FALSE This determines whether or not to truncate at a word boundary with FALSE, or at the exact character with TRUE.
4 boolean No FALSE This determines whether the truncation happens at the end of the string with FALSE, or in the middle of the string with TRUE. Note that if this setting is TRUE, then word boundaries are ignored.

Example 5.21. truncate


<?php
$smarty->assign('articleTitle', 'Two Sisters Reunite after Eighteen Years at Checkout Counter.');
?>

   

where template is:


{$articleTitle}
{$articleTitle|truncate}
{$articleTitle|truncate:30}
{$articleTitle|truncate:30:""}
{$articleTitle|truncate:30:"---"}
{$articleTitle|truncate:30:"":true}
{$articleTitle|truncate:30:"...":true}
{$articleTitle|truncate:30:'..':true:true}
