CiviCRM with Smarty

How Can We Help?

CiviCRM has Smarty support which enables useful logic for contribution emails and similar things, but it is not enabled for email by default. You must edit /wp-content/uploads/civicrm/civicrm.settings.php and enable Smarty:

 * Enable this constant if you want to send your email
 * through the smarty templating engine (allows you to do 
 * conditional and more complex logic)
if (!defined('CIVICRM_MAIL_SMARTY')) {
  define( 'CIVICRM_MAIL_SMARTY', 1 );

In addition, you should disable entities in CK editor. You can do that at Administer->Customize Data & Screens->Display Preferences. Then scroll down and click the “Configure CKEditor” button.

On the subsequent page, you will need to set entities to false.
