f:comment

Everything inside an f:comment ViewHelper will be removed. ViewHelpers within an f:comment block will not be executed. This ViewHelper is most useful when debugging a website: for example, you can temporarily wrap a f:for loop with an f:comment ViewHelper to stop it from being executed.

Properties

This ViewHelper has no properties.

Example

<f:comment>
  <p>This text will not be displayed</p>
  <p>My name is: {address.firstName}</p>
</f:comment>
<p>{address.firstName} lives in city xyz</p>
<![CDATA[<p>This text was made by {address.firstName} and will be displayed but not processed.</p>]]>

Output

<p>Stefan lives in city xyz</p>
<p>This text was made by {address.firstName} and will be displayed but not processed.</p>

Tip

The last row in this example is a special case. By using CDATA notation, you can stop the processing of variable placeholders from being executed. The text will be output, but the placeholder {address.firstName} won't be replaced. This is most common when working with JavaScript in your template, where you may want to output a string containing curly quotes.
