With Snippets you can include text snippets in your content

You can make reusable snippets (pieces of text/content) and easily include them into your content via a simple tag, like:

{snippet my-first-snippet}

When you edit the article (or module, or wherever you put the snippet tag), you will still see the tag. But on frontend view, you will see the content of the snippet instead.

Have a text snippet or a sentence you use often? Prepare it once, then simply insert it in articles with one click.

The great thing about Snippets is that when you change the content of a snippet, the output changes automatically in every place where you have used the tag!
