Writing own Smarty TAGs

Smarty plugin directory: /addon/smarty/plugins/

  • Lets assume you want to create the function/TAG {hello_world}
  • Create a file called /addon/smarty/plugins/function.hello_world.php
  • Place a function inside:
function smarty_function_hello_world($params, &$smarty) {
  echo "Hello World, says " . $params['name'] . "!";
  • Call {hello_world name=“Bob”} inside your template

The output would be:

Hello World, says Bob!
