    I’m trying to make a templating system that replaces certain patterns (using preg_replace), like {{ variable }} would be turned into <?=$variable?> in the document – does that make sense? So, here’s my code for the document:

    $template = ”

    {{ title }}

    This is my site, by {{ author }}

    {% foreach news as article %}

    {{ article[‘title’] }}
    {{ article[‘body’] }}

    {% else %}

    There are currently no articles

    {% endforeach %}

    $tpl = new Template;

    And here is the code I have that should be replacing at LEAST the ‘{{ title }}’ area right now…

    final class Template
    public function replace_variables($template)
    $replace = preg_replace(“/{{([.*]+)}}”,”“,$template);

    //echo $tempalte;

    //find anything that exists within {{ * }}
    //find out what * is
    //replace it how it’s supposed to be replaced
    //if it isn’t definded, say so
    echo $template;

    Please help me understand what I’m doing wrong in my regex so I can make this work. I appreciate any help. I have looked at tutorials for days and can’t figure it out!!!
