EOR replaces or completely removes parts of the rendered HTML output

With Easy Output Replacer you can easily replace or completely remove parts of the rendered HTML output of your Joomla! website! You can define as many replacement rules as you need. The execution can be limited to specific pages using parameters which can be obtained in the Debug Mode. Additionally the specified rules can be applied once or to all occurences and the search can be executed case-insensitive. The search string can be a normal string or a regular expression pattern.

Use this plugin to replace content (e.g. CSS classes, update copyright information, set links to keywords) or remove unwanted output (e.g. CSS / JS files, backlinks of extensions, complete module positions). With the power of regular expressions there are no limitations!


  • Replaces and removes part of the rendered HTML output
  • Small and fast plugin - no additional extensions required
  • Infinite number of replacement rules (repeatable fields)
  • Search for normal strings or powerful regular expressions
  • Dynamic replacement with system values, such as user, date and modules
  • Limit execution with the help of specific page parameters
  • Parameters can be easily obtained using the Debug Mode
  • Applies the rule on one or all occurrences
  • Caseless (case-insensitive) search
  • Execution in the backend
  • Languages: English and German


Install EOR with the help of the Installer component as usual. Then activate the plugin in Extensions -- Plugins -- System - EOR - Easy Output Replacer. Use the options in the "Settings" tab to adjust the plugin for your needs!

Click on the + button, enter all needed rules and set the corresponding options (see screenshot). You can add as many rules as you need!


  • Gather the needed search strings directly from the Source Code (usually Right Click -> View Source Code) to get the clean output.
  • Use the option Regex only for complex patterns! If you just want to replace a word, then deactivate this option.
  • Use the Debug Mode to find required parameters of a specific page. Don't forget to deactivate this option once you have all information that you need!
  • Activate the option Backend Execution only if you know what you are doing! ;-)

Latest release

Version - 2024-05-14

  • + Improved Pro Security Token validation check. The Pro package contains a token file with an individual security token linked to the user account that is checked against the validation server for authenticity. If the file is missing or the token is invalid, you cannot edit the settings and use the extension. The Pro Security Token field has been extended to handle incorrect tokens and blocked accounts. If you encounter an error message related to the token, download the Pro version with your Pro subscription from the linked download page and install it again!
  • Attention: The Pro extension will not work correctly if the token file or custom field is missing or modified. Never edit or remove the files to ensure correct functionality.
