Is using Smarty on templates with say only one variable still worth it? Or should I just use str_replace or just hard code it in to my function? I'm not using caching, so that's not an issue. Thanks.

Probably not, but of course -- it depends.

- Are you already using templates for other things? If so, then yes, it definately makes sense.

- Is there a LOT of boiled text in the page (say enough that you would have to read a text file anyways)? If not, then it is almost certainly not worth it.

- do the replaced contents need be duplicated in many places (say different pages)? Does the source text need to be evaluated differently for many scenarios? If so, then probably yes.

- What type of replacement is made? Are we talking about inserting a single word or complicated prepared content, perhaps the result of a complex rule? If the latter, then probably yes.

- What is the template turnover time (ie. how often does it get updated?) If not at all, then you likely do not need templates.

Anyways, that's all I'm going to type for such a simple question Smile
