So, you’re starting out building your first site with ExpressionEngine and you’re thinking to yourself: “I wish there was an easy one-page document I could use to reference some of the most commonly used ExpressionEngine tags and variables.” Well, you’re in luck.
The Quick Reference Chart has been around for a long time but it’s something first-time EE users might still find helpful. I used it when I first started developing websites with EE and I could probably use it now so I don’t have to keep looking up the date formatting codes.
It’s not a replacement for the easy-to-use EE Documentation, but it’s probably worth printing out and keeping on the desk in front of you. The cheat sheet comes as a
gif image file or as a PDF.
You probably want to print it out or, save paper, make it your desktop image for easy reference!
