    Has anyone tried Smarty?
    I had some vague recommendations, but never used it. It seems that it is a whole new technology from what I have seen before, and it may require some time for me to get used with it. So I am having doubts if it worths the effort, some opinions on this product would be welcome.

    The worth on using it is directly proportional with what you would be using it for.
    If you only intend to display static pages, than yes, Smarty is useless. If we're talking about dynamic content however, than Smarty has a lot to offer... it is not just a tempalting engine, but it has a lot of functions to also process the template variables before parsing (like making e-mail addresses invisible for SPAM bots, or displaying a number in money format, or a lot more....) or even process the whole templatge before displaying (like the one for trimming out spaces... and guess what's that good for...? :) it narrows down the necessary bandwidth for the site... and helps the pages load faster).
    This is Smarty, in a few words.
    Just check out the website, the WiKi & FAQ & the documentation are *very* good!
