Is there any way to put EE tags in entries, by entering the tag in a textarea of a channel entry for example?

I know there was an old plugin that enabled this, but is there anything for EE5?


  • By tags you mean {exp:channel:entries.... Or simply snippet|partials or variables? – Benoit L Apr 12 '19 at 13:28

Yes - you can install the 'Allow-EEcode' add-on. But you should think carefully before doing so - there are all sorts of sensible warnings on the github page. Almost always you can find a way to refactor what you are doing to not require use of this add-on.

    Yes, absolutely don't use this add-on (no offense to the quality of the add-on, I'm sure it works fine). You should never need that functionality to accomplish anything in EE, and you open a can of worms that will be a huge paint o re-lid down the line. – jrothafer Apr 12 '19 at 16:10
