|cacheExpires||3600||Time in seconds for the cache to be valid.|
|showAvailableData||0||Enable this (by setting it to 1) to see a dump of all data available for the selected user. Helpful in choosing your placeholders.|
|toPlaceholders||0||Enable this (by setting it to 1) to set all data to placeholders so you can use them in existing markup. This will DISABLE parsing the chunk specified with &tpl.|
