Joomla Articles with PDF

I have joomla 3.3.6 with phocaPDF plugion installed.  This works great. THe issues i run into is when  an article that get publioshed with an img src that is empty. <img src=""> This results in unable to find image. I f i use jquery to removed the HTML output  with  $("img[src='/']").remove();  the img tags are all removed but the i still get the error when running the PDF.


WHere can i put the code in phoca pdf  to remove this first.

While I'm unfamiliar with the extension, I'm guessing it is using Joomla's article renderer to get the content.  The plugin then intercepts it and writes it to a PDF.  This means javascript will never have the chance to be run - the PDF will contain only the static content originally in the article.

One possible solution is to create another plugin that acts before PhocaPDF fires.  That plugin can find and remove any blank images, allowing Phoca to construct the page properly.

Another solution would be to make sure you aren't inserting images with a blank src attribute.  Create a transparent placeholder, if necessary, and reference that image instead.

I created the plugin - however the PDF is still seeing the empty src- I will clean up the logic at the upload to just eliminate the problem at the source.

Thanks for the steering me in the correct spot
