NAME

HTML::Template::Filter::URIdecode - Allow tmpl_ tags to be URL-encoded.

SYNOPSIS

  use HTML::Template::Filter::URIdecode 'ht_uri_decode';

  my $t = HTML::Template->new(
    filename => 'zap.tmpl',
    filter   => \&ht_uri_decode
 );

DESCRIPTION

This filter primarily does URI-decoding of HTML::Template <tmpl_...> tags. It was designed for use Dreamweaver. Sometimes a <tmpl_var> tag is used in a way that would be invalid HTML:

 <a href="<tmpl_var my_url>"></a>

Dreamweaver fixes the invalid HTML in this case by URL encoding it. Rather than fight it, I've used this filter for the last several years, and Dreamweavers practice of URL-encoding these tags has never been a problem since.

Dreamweaver may also automatically "fix" URLS like this by adding one or more "../" in front of the <tmpl_var_> tag. This filter strips those as well.
