Site Variable Overview

tqTag Web Suite supports a feature called Site Variables, which the tqExpert creates (in the outer template) and for which tqAdmins (with suitable permissions) assign and change values.  Both tqExperts (in templates) and tqAdmins (in Website content) can use Site Variables. In templates, the following are reasons for a tqExpert to use Site Variables rather than hard-coding text:
  • To support multi-lingual Websites based on shared templates
  • To enable modification of template display-content after a template is published
  • To enable modification of Website contact information, such as email addresses, phone numbers, and so forth
  • To enable modification of template-based hyperlinks
  • To enable modification of alerts, search prompts and responses, and other text displayed to site visitors
The following are reasons for a tqAdmin to ask the tqExpert to create additional Site Variables:
  • For standardization and accuracy (and efficient support for changes) in company, product, and role names
  • For centralized management of external hyperlinks
  • For dynamic links within Website versions
  • For consistent phrasing in technical documentation
