A TPL file is a template used by Phorum, a PHP and MySQL-based open source message board system.

The template language found in TPL files consists of HTML and simple Phorum template statements. These statements support four data types, which may be integers, strings, PHP constants, or template variables. Since the template language is stored in TPL files as plain text, you can open and edit TPL files with any text editor.

Phorum typically uses TPL files for storing template code but may also use .PHP files if they are placed in the template directory and are named with the appropriate basename. For example, if Phorum is displaying the footer template, it first searches for footer.php in the template directory and if the file does not exist, will then look for footer.tpl. The inclusion of PHP files allows users to only use PHP/HTML code for templates if they do not want to use the Phorum template language required by TPL templates.
