accessing $PHORUM array in template??

//in index.php i added this lines,
$PHORUM["DATA"]["LANG"]["last_msg"]["body"]="blah";
echo PHORUM["DATA"]["LANG"]["last_msg"]["body"];
//works great, but i wanna use templates to do formating

i was kind of hoping that i just have to add
{LANG->last_msg->body} in the index template, but dont work...
...really lost...
how do i access vars in the template, that are genearated in the php file????

LANG is a special array. you should just stuff your vars in $PHORUM['DATA'], then you can use this as a direct var.

stufed it in
$PHORUM["DATA"]["msg"]
tryed just $PHORUM["DATA"] but that scrued up everything lol
but {FORUMS->DATA->msg} in index.tpl seems to be emty still

is the FORUMS arry in the tpl file a different array then the one in the php file? is there some sort of string replacement performent to display the data?

don't use this var, its used elsewhere by phorum for its messages, use something different ;).

$PHORUM["DATA"]["msg"]

would be {msg} in the template.

all data which is used in the template is in $PHORUM['DATA'] (which is an array).

<?php
print_var($PHORUM['DATA']['msg']);
?>

... in the template will tell you whats in there.

nope, print_var ... its defined in common.php and is a wrapper around print_r ;).

print_r is the most useless function in the world without a wrapper. I and a coworker patched and proposed a change to allow an optional HTML flag to the function. It was denied by the PHP team.
