Introduction

This article explains what Text Variables are, how they may be used, and what variables are available.

What is a Text Variable?

A text variable is a keyword which when used in a content item's body causes specific data to be displayed when the item is viewed.

For example, if the variable 22 Jan 2021 15:12 is placed in an item's body, every time the content item is requested, the text '$date_time' will be replaced with the server's current date and time.
