The Pro version of Content Templater comes with several data tags that you can use in your template, that will be inserted automatically in the content the moment you insert the template.

Note that these data tags will be replaced with the actual value when inserted in the article. They will not remain dynamic when you change the article data itself. If you need to place dynamic tags that do not get hardcoded into the article text, you can use ReReplacer instead.

Here is a complete overview of all of the available Dara Tags and their syntax:

Input Syntax Description Output Example
[[user:id]] The ID number of the current logged-in user. * 465
[[user:username]] The login name of the current logged-in user. * peter
[[user:name]] The name of the current logged-in user. * Peter van Westen
[[user:misc]] Any other available data field from the current logged-in user or the connected contact. *
