Vanilla Template tags

Template tags are used within your forum to display information dynamically. A template tag is code that instructs Vanilla to “do” or “get” something. For example if you write:


The Search box will be displayed.

Some template tags can have values added to them.  For example, the asset tag displays blocks of information, like your discussions or the side panel.

{asset name="Content"}
{asset name="Panel"}

Some template tags can have content between them, just like a regular HTML tags. For example, the literal tag allows you to put literal content such as CSS or JavaScript in a theme if you need to.

body {
font-family: Verdana;
