Hi All,

I want to give Editors the possibility to place prepared HTML snippets wherever they want within an open Content Textfield (HTMLEditorField).
I.e. if the Editor writes something like
'This is some Text
and some more Text'
into the content field, the page should show the (hardcoded) HTML of instead of the $mySnippet var.
Is there any prepared functionality in Silverstripe for this? How would you do this?
My Approach would be to check the $UserDefinedform var of the so called module and modify it's way of replacement. Ist there a better way?

Thx for any Feedback! :)
Kind regards
