I want to add some new functions to the core
string helper, which is found in
system/helpers folder. I think there was a 'right' way to do this using
MY_String_helper, or something of that sort. I can't remember exactly how it was done though. Any thoughts on this issue?
I found it. Make a file with a name such as this, in the
Then you can call
And it should load all the existing helper functions as well as the new ones you add.
Doing that you can not only add new functions but replace exising helper functions.
