Support » Plugin: AMP » Replace content

    I need to use str_replace(‘xADDx’, ”, $content) to delete the tags I use in the content to show adds in regular pages, but I can’t find where to do that in the AMP Plugin files.

    How is the ad markup being added to the pages in the first place?

    There is no way to directly use str_replace() to replace content. It is better to use a conditional like:

    <?php if ( function_exists( 'is_amp_endpoint' ) && is_amp_endpoint() ) : ?>
    <?php else : ?>
        ...non-AMP ad code...
    <?php endif; ?>

    When I’m writing my entry in the wp editor, I just put xADDx in the middle of the content in the place I want the advertisement to be shown. That’s why I need to replace xADDx for nothing in AMP.

    If it’s in the content then you can just use the the_content filter. I don’t know the specifics of how that replacement happens to begin with, but you could this code in your theme’s functions.php:

    add_filter( 'the_content', function( $content ) {
        if ( function_exists( 'is_amp_endpoint' ) && is_amp_endpoint() ) {
            $content = str_replace( 'xADDx', '', $content );
        return $content;
    }, 1 );

    I tryed that in my child functions.php and in the wp-content/amp/includes/admin/functions.php and it didn’t work.
    But I saw that in my child theme I had an “AMP” folder with footer.php and single.php.
    In single.php I changed this:
    <?php echo $this->get( 'post_amp_content' ); // amphtml content; no kses ?>
    for this:
    <?php echo str_Replace('<p>xADDx</p>', '', $this->get( 'post_amp_content' )); // amphtml content; no kses ?>
    and now it doesn’t show xADDx

    That isn’t the right functions.php file. It should be the one at the root of your theme.

    Ok. Thanks!
