What are these <xen:***> tags?


Active member
Maybe a stupid beginners question: In HTML templates, I often find terms like:

        <xen:foreach loop="$posts" value="$post">
            <xen:if is="{$post.message_state} == 'deleted'">
                <xen:include template="post_deleted_placeholder" />
            <xen:else />
                <xen:include template="post" />
This somehow looks like PHP code, but actually it isn't, because it is in <xen:***> tags.

Where can I learn more about this functionality? Is there a reference guide? Tutorials?

Thanks for any link, that helps to understand this. :)

It is XenForo syntax for use in HTML and CSS templates.

There is no user guide as such, just a matter of learning them as you go.
