How to hide stuff in template files?

Hi,

what is the save way to uncomment parts of a template file and do *not* show these later in the generated HTML code?

Can I use "{" and "}" without inner variable for this?

Best regards,
Christoph

So far as I understand correctly... yes you can generate some $variable in the code then paste the {$variable} in any template and for some conditions its value could be empty... but it's up to your code.

I am confused a bit and I'm afraid I did not get the question in whole ;-)

Right, you're wrong ;-)

I only want a simple thing:

To comment out previously written HTML in a manner that the comment is *not* visible later in the finally generated HTML code.

So I want some kind of "<!--" and "-->" but *not* visible later.

So a template tester/creator has the option to comment out some stuff and - may be - reactivate the code in future ... but nobody out there needs to know internals about the template variables (which also would be visible within normal HTML comments).

I hope it get's more clear now :-)

Best Regards,
Christoph

- not sure :-) It seems for me it's not possible overall. Whatever you put in HTML is always visible in the source.

I believe in you ;-)

What you put in HTML is always visible - I know :-)

I thought about a kind of special minibb tag which is replaced (like {$xxx}).
So grouping template code in "{" and "}" without a variable at beginning ("{$") should be replaced by the parser with ... well: nothing :-)

Or: Is there a simple possibility to check for "{*" and "*}" (like /* */ in C, PHP) when processing the templates and hide the code between those tags?

Best regards,
Christoph

There is no such possibility, miniBB parses only variables like {$var} and nothing else. As I already wrote you may try to use some $var and later generate or not generate the code for it...
