{extends}

{extends} tags are used in child templates in template inheritance for extending parent templates. For details see section of Template Interitance.

Note

When extending a variable parent like {extends file=$parent_file}, make sure you include $parent_file in the $cache_id. Otherwise Smarty cannot distinguish between different $parent_files.

Attributes:

Attribute Name Type Required Default Description
file string Yes n/a The name of the template file which is extended

Example 7.26. Simple {extends} example

{extends file='parent.tpl'}
{extends 'parent.tpl'}  {* short-hand *}
