PHP tags in Smarty templates


Recommended Posts

I know it is not recommended to use PHP tags in the Smarty templates, and that it poses risks to do so.  However, I'm not 100% sure what exactly those risks would be.  Can someone please elaborate on what the specific risks are in using PHP within the templates?

Thanks for the reply.  So, it sounds like it might be more procedural (best practice), to help ensure the roles (developer, designer, etc) are clearly defined and protected.  If the developer and designer are the same, it might be a moot point, but still would be best practice to divide the template code and PHP code for future separation of those roles.  I was unsure if there were possible vulnerabilities from external hacks, or something that would make the PHP code less secure if executed through the template as apposed to a hook.
