Common output strategies

Template files receive content and how they deliver it to the user is what we call the output strategy. There are a few different options and this section covers each in detail.

  • Direct output

    You already know direct output because it simply means printing output directly, as you might do in any other PHP script.
  • Delayed output

    Delayed output focuses on rendering the content/markup for all the various regions of our final document ahead of time, but delaying that output until everything is ready.
  • Markup regions

    Markup regions give you the best of both worlds—the simplicity of direct output with the power of delayed output, just using HTML.
