Standard Placeholders

The placeholder-marker is configurable in the Page Tree Creator settings. In the standard configuration they are double dollars:

$$placeholder$$

When using the Page Tree Creator, any placeholder from the source page tree/template is displayed in the replacement form and will be replaced with the user input


Default Placeholders

Default Placeholders can be inserted like normal placeholders, but get replaced automatically since the value is already fixed, they do not appear in the replacement dialog.
