<r:set_var />

This tag is used to set a variable.

Attribute Options

name="something" - The name of the variable.

value="something" - The value of the variable you’re setting.


<r:set_var name="archive_month" value="Dec2015" />

You can also set the value by not self-closing the tag:

<r:set_var name="salary_range">
  I'm the value

To expand on the example above, you can also set variables via Custom Data:

<r:set_var name="archive_month">
  <r:page:content name="archive_month" />

Note: Try not to use dashes (-) in variable names. Dashes are considered “minus” in logic and can make things confusing.
