Webstamp
Template Tags:
  • Prefixes: Prefixes can be used in order of first order then second order
    • First order (optional)
      • ^ Processed if in the current directory, even if the current page isn't from the current directory. .libs is first checked, and then each directory from the subsite root to the current page's directory is walked resolving ^ tags. The prefix is not included in references to these tags.
      • = Refers directly to a tagfile in the .libs directory. The prefix is included in references to these tags.
    • Second order (optional)
      • (none) Refers to a tagfile that will be included verbatim
      • _ Refers to a tagfile that will be processed dynamically
  • Details:
    • Static template parsed:
      • (none) The tagfile is included verbatim
      • ^ The tagfile is included verbatim from the tagfile found in the currently being processed directory
      • = The tagfile by the same name as the referred tag is included verbatim from the .libs directory
    • Dynamic template parsed:
      • ^_ The tagfile is included as processed PHP from the tagfile found in the currently being processed directory
      • =_ The tagfile by the same name as the referred tag is included as processed PHP from the tagfile found in the .libs directory

Prefix symbols have no hidden meaning. They're just symbols. Don't try to think of the shape or look of the prefix symbol as having anything to do with what the prefix symbol does in the context of Webstamp. We could have just as easily used other characters, just that these are the ones we started with.
