What Template (.tpl ) System / Tools are Used in phpMyFAQ?

Post by dweiss » Mon Jun 01, 2015 8:13 am

What specific template (.tpl ) system and tools are used my the phpMyFAQ software? As someone who has not used such templates before, it appears that there are several template implementation tools available, such as Smarty, etc. Which one is used in phpMyFAQ? In order to know how to modify a theme's tpl files correctly, it seems that one must know the specific tpl system in use, and I did not see that mentioned in the user documentation.

Thanks,
-Danny

Hi,

phpMyFAQ uses a self written template system in version 2.8 and 2.9.

The next generation phpMyFAQ version 3.0 will use Twig.

To what extent does the current system work in the way the Twig system does? That is, can one use the Twig documentation as an introduction to the overall concept of using templates and, therefore, get a general understanding of how the phpMyFAQ template system works?

For those of use who have not used templates in web design before, the phpMyFAQ documentation is insufficient to get a full understanding of the idea, and there does not seem to be much available on the web that provides a truly useful introduction to the concept, either. This makes it difficult for the less expert web designers among us to implement a custom look and feel on our phpMyFAQ systems.

Hi,

you are right, we have insufficient documentation about our template system, that's one reason we want to move to Twig in the near future.

The basic documentation about our template system is here: http://faq.phpmyfaq.de/content/3/9/en/a ... ework.html

If you need more, please drop me a line.
