Render Tags

Sites renders content in three ways:

Sites determines how to render content by using an argument named rendermode, which has three primary settings:

rendermode is set through the resargs of page entries in the SiteCatalog table. When Sites creates page entries for templates, it sets rendermode as an argument in the resargs columns for that entry and sets it to live. If you export or preview an asset that uses that template, Sites sets rendermode to export or preview, as appropriate.

The render tags process your page and element requests and create URLs and arguments for URLs. Some of the tags (render.callelement and render.satellitepage , for example) function similarly to tags that are available through Sites or Sites-Satellite. However, the render tags preserve the Sites rendering environment and the variables needed in that environment without requiring additional code.
