Hello

I've got a function in my page controller that returns an array of details of a user out of 3rd party marketing system - firstname, lastname, email etc.

I can use this info in the SS template, but I would like to I would like to be able to input something like "hello $firstname $lastname, how are you " into a text field the CMS.

Any ideas how I can make the cms text field merge the details from the array?

thanks

Perhaps try using short codes. SSBits has a good tutorial - http://www.ssbits.com/tutorials/2010/2-4-using-short-codes-to-embed-a-youtube-video/
