After you have defined what article or articles you want to show, you can tell Articles Anywhere what article data you want to output to the page.

If you place nothing between the opening and ending tags, the full article will be placed:

{article title="Shetland Sheepdog"}{/article}

However, you will probably only want certain types of data to show, like only the text or only the title.
To define what data you want to get displayed, you place "Data Tags" within the {article} and {/article} tags.

For instance, to show only the title of the article with id 123, you can do:

{article id="123"}[title]{/article}

You can display a huge range of data types, including any article data, category data, dates, and even custom field values and dynamic data - pretty much anything you can think of.

Let’s take an in-depth look at the Data Tags available and their respective options and features.

This is a full list overview of all the data types you can use as Filters, Ordering, Data Tags and inside If Structures with Articles Anywhere. Remember:

  • When you want to output the data (Data Tags), you need to surround them with square brackets - for example: [title].
  • When using these in all other cases (filters, ordering and If structures), then they must be used without the square brackets - for example: {if title != 'Furry Animals'}...{/if}.

Refer to the respective sections of the documentation for the full explanation and details on how to use each of these.

Tip: Data types that return True / False values are especially useful to do custom checks with If Structures.
