Use locale definitions in default_master.tpl

edited September 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
can someone point me to a/the way to make use of the locale.php definitions in default_master.tpl?
SMARTY's {php} tag doesn't seem to work here.

  • weren't SMARTY {php} tags supposed to work?

    I assumed that way I could make use of the T('') function but using {php} returns no output whatsoever. (LAMP/Lenny, PHP 5.2.14)

    unfortunately even the tutorials use hardcoded link names. (Dashboard, Discussions, ..) :(

    am I missing something here..?
  • as I'm obviously talking to myself I might as well answer my own questions:

    the use of SMARTY's {php} tags seem to be disabled in/library/core/class.smarty.php

    So unless there's no other switch or config setting to change or overrride this you can add $Smarty->security_settings['PHP_TAGS'] = TRUE; *after* line 77 $Smarty->security = TRUE; to enable the use of {php}.

    This way you can theme language independent and use eg {php}echo T('Discussions');{/php} in your .tpl file(s).

    don't know about you but to me this seems like an important option to have to get theming for vanilla rolling.

    I just started with vanilla so in case I re-invented the wheel pls let me know.
