I am printing fields in a node template, but Twig is escaping my tags and ruining my day.

My .tpl looks like this:

    <p class="title">{{ content.field_myfield.0 }}</p>

I want to strip all tags from the original field and then "wrap" the field in a paragraph tag with the title class. I found out how to get the raw value without tags based on this question.

However, this is the HTML that is actually output:

  <p class="title"></p><p>When you wish upon a star</p><p></p>

What am I doing wrong?

  • content.field_myfield.0|render|striptags|trim . Can we try something like this. Commented May 11, 2020 at 13:11

You can use the following code below:


render: The striptags filter strips SGML/XML tags and replaces adjacent whitespace by one space. You can also provide tags which should not be stripped:

{{ content.field_myfield.0|striptags('<br><p>')}}

trim: The trim filter strips whitespace (or other characters) from the beginning and end of a string:

{{ '  I like Twig.  '|trim }}

{# outputs 'I like Twig.' #}

{{ '  I like Twig.'|trim('.') }}

{# outputs '  I like Twig' #}

{{ '  I like Twig.  '|trim(side='left') }}

{# outputs 'I like Twig.  ' #}

{{ '  I like Twig.  '|trim(' ', 'right') }}

{# outputs '  I like Twig.' #}

The example above used from the twig website.
