Replacer performs a fairly trivial task - it searches for and replaces given strings in the final HTML. It has a simple, intuitive interface that allows you to create replacements and immediately see their results, edit HTML and text right on the store pages.

This add-on gives you a new level of freedom and control over your store, and allows you to do many things that previously required digging in the code.

Here are some tasks that can be done in a couple of clicks in Replacer:
  • change any text on the page
  • add the required counter or other service code to any part of the page
  • change links to static resources to use a CDN on a different domain
  • hide empty cart
  • correct the page code according to the recommendations of PageSpeed ​​or other services
  • remove "Powered by Opencart" from footer
  • translate the module in frontpage to other language

Installation is simple - upload to the installer and update the modifiers. After that, a menu item will appear:

When you click on it, an interface opens with a slightly reduced start page of your store:

Your store page immediately displays all the changes you make, you can click on links to other pages in it.

The Add Replace button opens a window for adding a new replacement:

You can use an asterisk (or several) in search and replace strings, it replaces any number of characters.

For example, to remove all image tags from the page, replace <image *> with an empty string.

The Edit HTML button switches the store page window to display its HTML source code:

Replacements made are highlighted in yellow in the page code. Select a piece of code (hold down the mouse and drag), to open editing of new replacement for this code:

The Edit Page button turns on the mode in which you simply edit any text on the page by placing the cursor there.
