Variable Editor

The Variable Editor allows you to create Variables which can be used in Templates and Editorial Pages throughout your site. The Editor window has four tabs - Edit, Properties, Usage, and History. Variables are limited to 120 characters in length.

  • The Edit Tab is where you edit the Variable, using  HTML. Note that Scheme and Language variations are listed where applicable.
  • The Properties Tab holds a descriptuion of the Variable.
  • The Usage Tab lists all  the Page Layouts, Content Layouts, and Variable Blocks, where the  Variable is used.
  • The History Tab shows recent change history. 

Creating a New Variable

  • To create a new Variable, first click the Variable Icon to open the Variable Editor.
  • Type in the name of your new variable, and click the Add command.
  • Now Edit the new variable, and assign a value to it. For example:

Roger's Heavenly Emporium of Price Saving!

Assuming you had called this variable CName, you could now place this variable in a template, using the syntax: <variable>CName</variable>

... or you could place it in a normal text box inside a page, using the syntax: :::variable-CName:::

In either case, the variable name placeholder would be replaced with the text "Roger's Heavenly Emporium of Price Saving!"
