In addition to adding or deleting bits to your [[_main.php file]] and/or customizing the look with CSS you can also customize ‘’how'’ many of the specific components look using parameters in the function calls.
Each Template File is actually a PHP file, which means it’s a mix of HTML and PHP code.. Everything inside of the
<?php ... ?> tags will be executed and will output something when the page is viewed. Everything outside of the php tags is XHTML code that will be sent to the browser just as it is.
This page deals with <?php stuff inside php tags ?>.
If you’re not familiar with PHP, then it may look a little intimidating at first, but don’t worry: it’s very straightforward. For example
<?php myfunction( 'foo', 'bar' ) ?> simply means "do the thing called myfunction and use ‘foo’ for the first parameter and ‘bar’ for the second." The trick is to know what parameters you can supply and in what order you need to supply them.
