Hello Forumers,

Apologies in advance if this appears as a total retard issue..

I am trying to resurrect some old php5 code for a text based rpg and smarty was recommended as the template engine. The issue here is that {$name} is not returning any values and I am being presented with some smarty template errors representing undefined index. <?php echo $_SESSION['username'];?> works fine.

Please do not hesitate to let me know if there are any further details required.

Why the hell do you address $smarty properties directly to begin with?

Hello AnrDaemon,

I appreciate your humbled and knowledgeable response.

As mentioned in my first post to the forum, I am "trying" <- (this is the keyword here) to resurrect some old php5 code. Why would I address smarty properties first? Well, if I can't get this to populate for something as simple as "name" it sure as &%#& isn't going to populate for anything else.

Could you try again at actually helping me, please?

Kind Regards,

I don't know, what exactly your "resurrection" encompass, but you didn't provide the code anyone can test.
Just some bits that can only be guessed at.
Did you read Smarty documentation? Did you see its examples?
Smarty is no magic, it is a very strict and direct presentation layer. If you did not assign your $name anywhere to the document instance before rendering, of course it will be empty.
Not to mention, running PHP code from templates is not going to work.

AnrDaemon,

This may very well be resolved.

Bless you.
