phpfox template functionsIf you are a developer using this Social Networking Package you’ll already know that the documentation is pretty thin.  It uses PHPFox template functions similar to Smarty, but not identical.  We have been unable to find any documentation on the functions available.  However, we have stumbled on the PHP file in the source code that processes the template functions and studying this can help you to determine what functions are available, what they are called, and the arguments they take.

As of version 3.7 of phpfox this file path is:


The private function _parseFunction in that file has a switch that includes case statements for all of the valid tags that you can use, along with code that helps you understand what arguments it knows how to parse. Very helpful.

We hope this helps others frustrated by poor documentation.
