Does "liquid.error_mode" config actually do anything?


If we include the following in our _config.yml:

  error_mode: lax

…should I still be getting a Liquid Exception when I include the following (just an example of a syntax error) in one of my templates:

{% broken



Did you ever get an answer on this? Because I’m curious about the same thing.


Unfortunately I did not.


Have you tried strict mode?


Yes, all values still cause "Liquid Exception"s.

So it seems as the setting might be ignored and always defaults to “strict”.
