{What_Are_These_Called}?
« on: October 25, 2006, 08:40:40 pm »

Please excuse a sort of off-topic question.  :-[ I'm having a really weird PHP problem & I'm trying to figure out just what the script is doing.  So could someone tell me what these are called, for instance: {IMAGE}, {ADMIN_MENU}, {USER1}?

With that knowledge I can check the PHP documentation or go to a PHP board.

I found a reference to "placeholder" somewhere in the boards, but that doesn't seem to be the official name for these things.

Thank you,

JD

Those are no PHP elements, but placeholder tokens that only have a special meaning in Coppermine's template engine. You won't find anything about those tokens in the PHP documentation nor will you be able to re-use them on other (non-coppermine) pages. They have been deliberately created using the curly brackets, the coppermine devs could as well have chosen any other unique string (e.g. instead of using {GALLERY}, we could have created the template engine to use a token named |FOOBAR| or ##WHATEVER##).

Please understand that this board deals with Coppermine-related questions, there are better places to learn PHP.

Thanks, GauGau.  I guess that's why I don't remember reading about them in the PHP documentation.
