Droplets are small chunks of PHP which can provide multiple information. You can use them e.g. for displaying the content of a specific section, generate a subnavigation or showing the output of your own PHP functions. With the reworked Droplets module for WBCE you can easily import and export droplets.
If you have created a droplet you would like to share with the WBCE community, please use our forum at
This page is currently under construction. we will add more droplets soon. (BTW, a huge bunch of droplets is already included in the module itself.)
- Font Awesome
Simple Way to place Font Awesome icons in the text, e.g. [fa?f=lightbulb-o] ] or [ [fa?f=lightbulb-o&size=2x]] (up to 5x)
. Requires the Font Awesome webfont CSS to be loaded (either by CDN or included to template). Has now the possibility to set the size, e.g. Example: [
- Get Section By Name
Modification of the Section Picker Droplet. This one uses not the ID but the name (if given) of a section to fetch its contents.
- MP4 Video
Generate a HTML5 video tag for mp4 files in the media folder.
- OSM Map
Creates an OpenStreetmap tile with an marker and a comment. Example: (This droplet is a contribution of WBCE community member berny)
Imageslider using keyframes, created by frankw. See https://forum.wbce.org/viewtopic.php?pid=24131#p24131 or droplet notices for details.
Get a random image from a folder in the MEDIA folder. (This droplet is bundled with the droplets module.)
- Replace Character
Use this droplet to replace one or more characters when the page is rendered. This could be used f.ex. as an easy way to add line breaks to menu titles.
- Section Picker
Display the content of any section on another page.
- Section Picker 1.4
The default Section Picker Droplet from WBCE 1.4 which uses new methods to fetch the content.

- Edit This Page
Add a direct link to the edit view of the current page to its frontend view.
- LoginBox (fixed)
Use: [ [LoginBox?redirect=url] ], whilst url has to be the complete path, e.g http://www.example.com/pages/target.php. You can also use wblink, but have to add a dummy parameter (otherwiese there will be problems with the brackets), e.g. [ [loginbox?redirect=[wblink 42]&foo=bar] ] (remove blanks!)
Displays the last modification time of the current page. (This droplet is bundled with the droplets module.)
Removes the <p> ... </p> around content which was generated by a droplet. (This problem occurs when the droplet is called in a wysiwyg section.) Note that this droplet possibly removes wanted p tags nevertheless, e.g. when using the Font-Awesome-Droplet.
Add this droplet to your template just above the </body> tag.
Shows a random or the latest image from a folder tree

Use: Text2png?text=(text, Mandatory)&ttffile=(fontfile.ttf, Mandatory)&fontcolor=(fontcolor, Optional)&fontsize=(fontsize, Optional)
text = Text to convert into truecolor png with transparent background.
ttffile = True Type Font file (.ttf or .otf), must be in the folder media/fonts/ but you can change this in the code.
fontcolor = Color in 6 digit HEX format, "000000" (black) by default.
fontsize = Size of the font in points (if gd2 is used, otherwise in pixels), 12 by default.
This droplet has a rudimentary but efficient caching system but it never deletes any file, if you want you can delete all the png files starting with the name "text2png_" in your temp folder, droplet will recreate the needed files.
This droplet was created by forum member "quinto". Thanks for sharing!
