I recently had to change the doctype in a Zend Framework 2 environment. It was kind of difficult to find the answer so I share with you. Simply set the doctype before “running it” in index.php like this:
<?php /** * This makes our life easier when dealing with paths. Everything is relative * to the application root now. */ chdir(dirname(__DIR__)); // Setup autoloading include 'init_autoloader.php'; $doctypeHelper = new ZendViewHelperDoctype(); $doctypeHelper->setDoctype($doctypeHelper::HTML5); // Run the application! ZendMvcApplication::init(include 'config/application.config.php')->run();
The possible doctypes are:
XHTML11 XHTML1_STRICT XHTML1_TRANSITIONAL XHTML1_FRAMESET XHTML1_RDFA XHTML1_RDFA11 XHTML_BASIC1 XHTML5 HTML4_STRICT HTML4_LOOSE HTML4_FRAMESET HTML5 CUSTOM_XHTML CUSTOM
That’s all folks.
