variables in template

Postby readytopark » Sun Apr 25, 2010 9:35 am

i've been working on OJS and starting to figure out its structure is designed to work very efficiently.. i think it's got a really good design.

but, I've run into one problem dealing with variables in template(*.tpl)

For instance, there's a variable, $content|nl2b in information.tpl and I have COMPLETE no idea where that variable is defined..

I discovered that It's related to "default.journalSettings.forAuthors" key value in locale.xml, but I can't figure out how they are connected and finally shown right in the web page..

Does anybody know how it works..???

Anything will help.. Thank you.!
