Token ()

Vocabulary: Glossary

Tokens are pieces of text that follow specific formatting rules, such as [token] or @token, and may be inserted into any text fields that allow them. 

They are similar to variables but are neither built in to a computer language nor a database.

When the page is rendered, tokens are replaced by the values they represent. Tokens are not bound to any information when they are inserted, so they need contexts to be set in order to return specific data.
