Including dynamic content (PHP) inside of default.master.tpl


I'm using the latest 2.1 release with the Bootstrap theme (

I notice there doesn't seem to be a template.master.php anymore - only the smarty .tpl version both inside of Vanilla and the template i am using.

I'd like to include a block of HTML in the header which comes from a central location for simple maintenance.
We achieve the same effect in Wordpress using a cURL request - caching this data - and simply echoing out the output inside of the template.

What is the best way to reproduce this inside of Vanilla?

Is there any documentation around creating custom smarty tags?
