I am working with a opensource faq script, trying to modify the layout to fit my site and am trying to understand how different functions are being called. Well they might not be functions, but I'll use that for lack of a better term.
So my newbie question is what does it mean, or what is it called, when this is used in a php script:
THe SomeText obviously changes depending what is being called.
I am trying to find where certain things are being called so I can modify the layout of those items.
Those look like template tags, which are used by template engines such as fastTemplates or smarty. These tags are parsed by the template engine inside of the script to replace the tag with some sort of valid xhtml, which in most cases will just be string.
So what you need to search for is the SomeText and see what template method is being called to assign a value to that variable or tag.
