Template Inheritance is an extremely useful technique for making reusable HTML layouts for a site. It is much more flexible than alternative techniques, such as “including” common elements of a page (like a header and footer file).
The concept has been around for a while, most notably in the Django template engine. Unlike other libraries, PHP Template Inheritance lets you write everything in straight PHP. There is no need to learn another template language.
It involves two separate templates, each in their own file: the parent template and the child template. The parent contains the HTML skeleton and markers for where content should go. These markers are calledblocks. The child then “fills-in” the blocks with content.
