Hmm, I personally doubt it. I can’t read minds obviously, but if they’re looking for comment tags I expect them to be happy when they find it.
If Jason or Shaun popped in on this convo and say it’s now the official comment tag, would that satisfy those users that in your opinion would?
And then again, what do they lose if they don’t use it? I like my templates & chunks clean
There is one technical reason to properly support it.
On a cached page, all cached snippets and chunks are replaced with their value. But the unknown [[# comment]] tag not, so it is parsed (and discarded of course) on every page request.
If the comment tag would be supported by the core, the comment would be removed and would not appear in the cached pages offering a slight performance benefit.
I have not tested it, so I assume you have, but my expectation is that (since you’re also calling it cached) it just gets removed before putting it in the cache....
If you have tested that, you may want to make sure that’s added to the bug report so that is taking into consideration.
Mark, I checked the content of the .cache.php file and it is visisble in the ’_content’ element.
