Nice tut! but personally I would do:

public function __construct( $name ) { $this->path = sprintf( '%s/%s.php', self::DIRECTORY, $name ); }

so that I can call the template class like:

$template = new Template( 'page' );

Just my preference.

Good concept, and it seems like a good tutorial, although I haven’t tried implementing it yet.

I did notice this typo:
a bit hard to understand what’s going on here. B

At the end of this tutorial I want to list some

ut if you follow the order of method calls carefully you’ll get it.

BTW , any chance you can provide the files in a zip file for quick review?

Umm you can actually already do what you propose in Smarty. Smarty doesn’t force you to include three separate files as header-content-footer, you can do the master template with one or more content areas instead if you want.

To use master template pattern you simply write {include file=”$tplName.tpl”} or whatever you want to call your file variable in the place that you want it included. Just set this variable to the content template you want to load and you’re done. In fact this is the basic example in Smartys tutorials which is where I got it from.

I think the header-content-footer pattern simply has been the most popular pattern for some time until people realised how much this sucked on sites with alot of markup.
