compileAllTemplates() — compiles all known templates


string compileAllTemplates(string extension,
                           boolean force,
                           integer timelimit,
                           integer maxerror);

This function compiles template files found in the $template_dir folder. It uses the following parameters:

  • extension is an optional string which defines the file extension for the template files. The default is ".tpl".

  • force is an optional boolean which controls if only modified (false) or all (true) templates shall be compiled. The default is "false".

  • timelimit is an optional integer to set a runtime limit in seconds for the compilation process. The default is no limit.

  • maxerror is an optional integer to set an error limit. If more templates failed to compile the function will be aborted. The default is no limit.


This function may not create desired results in all configurations. Use is on own risk.


If any template requires registered plugins, filters or objects you must register all of them before running this function.


If you are using template inheritance this function will create compiled files of parent templates which will never be used.

Example 14.15. compileAllTemplates()

$smarty = new Smarty;

// force compilation of all template files
