public Custom snippet and language tags

Contents [ show ]

What is a custom snippet? What is a custom language tag?

When you want to change only a few words from the installed pack and for a specific application, the smartest thing to do, is to submit a custom language template. This template must possess the same template_key and be assigned to the same application, as the language template used to generate the text you want to alter. Custom language templates are used with a priority over the ones that come with the language pack. If you update or change the language pack, the custom template will not be altered or deleted and will continue to be used.

The language tags and the custom snippets are almost the same thing. By definition, the snippet is not only text, but piece of html code. Snippets are in the most cases not present in the language pack and are used from the Integra builders to template a piece of content that is used often.

Browse the available custom snippets and language tags

It is the unique identifier of a word or piece of text, which stays the same in all language packs.
application

    • Template value - the new text you want to appear, when the template key is substituted by the system.
    • Description - this not presented to the public and serves as a note for the other administrators
    • Application - choose from the drop down for which application you want this text to be applied.
  7. Press the "Create tag" button.

Delete custom snippet or language tag

If for this application, there is a language pack installed that has this template_key, the system will start presenting its value, in the place of the already deleted one. If this template_key is not part of the installed language pack for this application, the template key itself will be presented on the interface to the public.
