templateExists() — checks whether the specified template exists


bool templateExists(string template);

It can accept either a path to the template on the filesystem or a resource string specifying the template.

Example 14.48. templateExists()

This example uses $_GET['page'] to {include} a content template. If the template does not exist then an error page is displayed instead. First the page_container.tpl

{include file='page_top.tpl'}

{* include middle content page *}
{include file=$content_template}

{include file='page_footer.tpl'}


And the php script


// set the filename eg
$mid_template = $_GET['page'].'.inc.tpl';

if( !$smarty->templateExists($mid_template) ){
    $mid_template = 'page_not_found.tpl';
$smarty->assign('content_template', $mid_template);
