Overview

Magic Tags are like the special variables used in Mail Merge Templates; you can use them to identify custom fields or post fields to be replaced in your Pods Templates.  You identify them by using the format {@field_name}within your Pods Templates or Pods Shortcodes/Custom Templates. When your Pod Template is processed, the magic tags are replaced with the actual values in those fields each time the template runs through the loop. You can do more specific things with Special Magic Tags and Template Tags as defined below.
