you know what Smarty needs? a way to comment out Smarty code in the template files so nothing gets processed by Smarty or displayed in HTML source.

<!-- Smarty code in this comment tag is still processed and viewable in HTML source! -->

if such a thing exists... I couldn't find it!

thanks!

It seems you haven't really seen the content listing of the manual, the first chapter in II.3: http://smarty.php.net/manual/en/language.basic.syntax.php#language.syntax.comments

I looked at the documentation but how would one comment a part of the actual Smarty syntax out. For example, say I wanted to comment out the strip_tags argument in the below example:

{$event.desc|strip_tags|substr:0:200|trim}

I don't want to remove that argument, I just want to comment it out.

I tried {$event.desc|* strip_tags| *substr:0:200|trim} which did not work and completely broke the page.

What I do is this:
Code:
{*
Was: {$event.desc|strip_tags|substr:0:200|trim}
Now: {$event.desc|substr:0:200|trim}
Date: 5 May 2021
Reason: Issue #9876, Branch #6A
*}
{$event.desc|substr:0:200|trim}
