    1. How to print value

    Printing variables
    Use this syntax  {{ }} to print a variable in twig.
    for eg:

    //This syntax is used to print out the result of expression like
    
    {{ page.primary_menu }}

     

    Control statements:

    {% if page.footer1 %}
    <div>
    
        {{ page.primary_menu }}
    
    </div>

    <div>
            {{ page.custom_menu }}
    </div>
    
    {% endif %}

         <header id="header" class="header">
            <h1 class="logo"> {{ page.header }} </h1>
        </header>
    #}
