Introduction to Liquid

As you know, Liquid is classified into three subcategories consisting of objects, filters and tags. Liquid use objects to show the location of content on a page. Objects and variable names are denoted by double curly braces. Filters change the output of a Liquid object. Tags create logic and control flow for a template. Tags begin with two curly braces and percent signs. Tags can be divided into three types: control flow, iteration and variable assignment.

Prepend belongs to filters.

What is prepend

Prepend is a Liquid filter that allows you to add the specified string to the beginning of another string. The filter is useful because you can add the topic of the string, in front of elements of the chain. Therefore, visitors can easily follow the information.
