How the Desktop Template Tags Work

A template produces a channel, page, or table. The tags in a template are swapped with for real values at runtime. For example, the [tag:netmailSettings] tag swaps in a partial HTML template that has mail server information. The [tag:fontFace] tag swaps in the value of the font that the user has chosen on the Theme page. The [tag:switchColumns] tag swaps in the switchColumns.js template file, a JavaScript template, that lets users change how the columns are displayed on their Desktops.
