$Content->output()

Outputs the current content using a template.

By default, this function will use the content/output.php file in the current theme. This can be overridden by passing in a template name:

// output the content using the default template 'output'
$content->output();

// output the person using an alternative template:
$content->output('short');

Within the template, you can access the content's information using the $content variable, and the POD using the $POD variable. So, you can do something like this:

// load some content and display it
$c = $POD->getContent(array('stub'=>'foo'));
$c->output('tiny');

And then, in content/tiny.php in your theme directory:

// inside the content/tiny.php template, we write out fields:
< $content->write('headline'); ?>
