Smarty Error: Unrecognized tagΒΆ

If you get the “unrecognized tag...” Smarty error after adding a JavaScript code (for example, a tracking code) to a template, the inserted JavaScript code most likely contains the { and } tags. Smarty uses { and } as delimiters and attempts to interpret the JavaScript code in the template that way.

To avoid the error, complete the following steps:

  1. Open the template to which you have added the code.

  2. Enclose the JavaScript code in a {literal}...{/literal} container to prevent Smarty from parsing it:

    your JavaScript code
  3. Save the file.
