Is it possible to use template tags within an entry? Specifically, I'd like to use Globals I've set up within an entry, so I can manage a brand name globally.

You can, using reference tags, but unfortunately they only work in plain text fields:

Reference tags in rich text fields parse and converted on save


Not sure from your question where you are trying to display the information.

  • If displaying in a template then you can access the global directly {{ globalSetHandle.fieldHandle }}.
  • If displaying within another textfield then, as Tim suggested, using reference tags is great idea (I would have never thought of that, Tim!)
