I've tried to understand what functionality the Tokens module provides, but haven't been able to use it nor fully understand the idea behind it.

Could you give me some pointers ?

I was looking for a module that would allow one to specify a key / value dictionary in the admin dashboard (for instance, 'public_annoucement', 'Lorem Ipsum ...') and then, using a token inside a content (HTML Widget or other), just write {public_announcement} and it would replace it with the content.

Also, as the value changes, it should reflect on every page using this token. 

Does this make any sense ? Is this module doing anything like this ?

Thanks for your help

See this recent discussion about using an IHtmlFilter and the Tokens module to do exactly that:

Thanks I'll look into that, but it seems like exactly what I'm looking for. 

I'm quite new to Orchard, so I'll probably be back with some questions ...

thanks !
