 What this tag does, is call to the database and pull the applicable information (dynamic data)  that is tied to that specific page. Quickly review the default templates that came with your program to see where this tag is used in each of them. It’s as simple as that! As long as you have the {body_html} tag in your template, the software will take care of the "content area" for that page. What this tag does, is call to the database and pull the applicable information (dynamic data)  that is tied to that specific page.

-For example, when a visitor browses the "Search Page", this software recognizes which page they are on, and displays the dynamic "search" content wherever it sees that the {body_html} tag is located within that page’s assigned template. That very same template can also be assigned to the "Login Page", "Registration Page", and every other page for that matter. All the software cares about is to search the template, find the {body_html} tag, and replace that tag with the correct content for that particular page((Technically speaking, that explanation is totally inaccurate, it is a lot more complex then that.  But the end result is that the {body_html} does get replaced with the contents that are meant to display on that page.)).  .+For example, when a visitor browses the "Search Page", this software recognizes which page they are on, and displays the dynamic "search" content wherever it sees that the {body_html} tag is located within that page’s assigned template.

 It is important to understand that the dynamic content which is displayed by the {body_html} tag is pulled directly from the database. We want to make the distinction between the {body_html} display properties and PAGE MODULES display properties. {body_html} properties (settings, text, fonts, etc.) are all controlled by those settings you have made within the [[admin_menu/site_setup/start]] Menu, as well as the other menus in the admin. PAGE MODULES properties, on the other hand, are controlled entirely by their own individual settings within the PAGE MODULES menu. So, when you want to make a change to a setting on your site, you must first determine whether you are working with a {body_html} feature or a specific PAGE MODULE. It is important to understand that the dynamic content which is displayed by the {body_html} tag is pulled directly from the database.
