The CMS Made Simple template includes a footer where you can put links to your site or copyright information. Creating a footer is easy and will take just a few minutes. It also contains a simple code snippet for generating a link in a user-defined tag.
User-defined tags can be used in several places in your template. You can use them to call modules or access data that is stored in modules. These tags may be called from a Smarty value. This way, they can be used to reformat text or data, escape certain characters, and obfuscate e-mail addresses.
User-defined tags can also be used to include information that is not part of the template’s main content. For example, the module editor can be accessed through the back end. To do this, you’ll need to log in to the admin area and be granted appropriate permissions. Then, you’ll need to write the tag code. Remember that you can only write a user-defined tag if it contains letters, numbers, or underscores.
Outputting text from a user-defined tag
The User Defined Tag (UDT) allows you to output text in various ways. For example, it can output the first 100 words of a web page into an array. The tag will also ignore any lines that begin with ‘#’ or that are empty. You can also use this tag to rotate an ad on your site automatically.
This method is similar to using a Global Content Block. You can use an include tag in your template to call Global Content Blocks. The tag will use the default value if you do not supply a named parameter. The resulting data is then returned to smarty.
Global content blocks
Global content blocks allow you to add information anywhere on your website without copying and pasting it on every page. For example, you can create a contact box as a global content block and call it from any page. Then, you can easily update that information. You can even copy the contact box from one page to another.
Once you have your page, you can easily create a similar one by hovering over the “Copy” icon. After that, you can click on the “Add New Content” button near the page’s title. The “Title:” field will contain the page title, and “Menu Text:” will display the page’s name in the CMS directory.
You can customize the default templates if you want to create custom pages in CMS Made Simple. The default templates are based on HTML code. These templates vary in terms of the number of content blocks and the menu type. They are also styled by CSS, which will help you customize your pages’ appearance.
