{intro}
Hi! I'm very new here, even I have used Smarty before

I have a framework writed by my own which uses a template system writed by my own too. I'm looking to Smarty3 and it seems very cool and I decided to discontinuated my template engine and start using Smarty3.

But I'm used to do a couple of things and I'd like to know if I can do the same using smarty.
{/intro}


Is there a way of setting a default extension to all the templates? I always used ".tpl" in all my templates and I don't like to specify it over and over when using display, extends, include, etc. etc. I'd like to know if there is a better way than doing it manually or parching smarty

Regards

#1) you can use any extension you like for smarty template files

#2) you must use the full name of the template file when calling extends/display/fetch/etc. If you want to skip the extension, write a custom resource handler that tacks on the extension for you.

Wow, very fast answer. Thank you.

I already replaced the display method, but it doesn't help too much, I think it just creates overhead and inconsistency because I need to specify the .tpl extensions in the other methods anyway, right?

Code:
public function display($template, $cache_id = null, $compile_id = null, $parent = null)
{
  parent::display($template . '.tpl', $cache_id, $compile_id, $parent);
}

This hack will probably cause more problems Smile

That's what I thought. Anyway a good feature could be having a way to configure a default tpl extension, something like:

Code:
$this->setDefaultTemplateExt('tpl')


That way we could avoid having to specify the same extension for every template. Well, I think it'd be nice

***

On a different matter, I extended the Smarty class, and I wonder if it's okay to create magic methods, array access methods to assign or retrieve data, example:

Code:
function __set($var, $value)
{
  $this->assign($var, $value);
}


I really apreciate your help.
