Hi, Smarty is trully fantastic - relatively easy to learn and use and is very powerful.
I used to use the phplib template engine which was also impressive but Smarty is much more sophisticated. Some great things about Smarty:- - site pages can be cached (can save masses of time if the server is having to re-create the same database backed pages) - a well written, extensive and thorough manual (a must if you are to use Smarty to its max) - the Smarty 'presentation' code resides with the html and is consequently separated from the php code . This may be said by some to be a bad thing as the point of the such template engines is to separate the html from programming code; however I have found that in the case of phplib templates (and no doubt many other template engines) html was, by necessity, finding its way into the programming code and also the code to manage the generate the templates could become quite bulky. Smarty is practically and conceptually more elegant in that it separates 'all presentation related code' (html and smarty constructs) and logic (ie. your php), what's more, the actual lines of code that I have to write is reduced as a result.
