A container is created in the Templates folder with a click on + New/Container. However, this requires special user rights. Containers are pure data storage objects and can be read out via TAL. They can be used, for example, to publish a newsletter in several languages with different addresses in the imprint. With the help of containers, different language versions of a newsletter can be mapped via a single eMail template (master template). Each language derivation of the eMailings is based on the master template, only the language containers with the data are exchanged. Thus, a separate imprint can be displayed in each language version of a newsletter.
Language container with German address
Language container with Austrian address
The fields displayed in the container and usable in the eMail are defined by a container type.
Container contents as JSON
The only JSON exceptions are container lists. If a container list contains a container that is based on the same container type as the queried container, the container list will not appear in the JSON array.
