# Criteria shortcuts

A criterion can sometimes be written in a simplified form: `{criterion}`. In such cases, SPIP normally translates this as `{criteria=#CRITERIA}` (unless a special function has been defined for this particular criterion in ecrire/public/criteres.php).

1. <BOUCLEx(TABLES){criterion}>...

## Example

1. <BOUCLE_art(ARTICLES){id_article}>...

In this example, `{id_article}` makes the selection `{id_article=#ID_ARTICLE}`. Just as with any SPIP tag, `#ID_ARTICLE` is retrieved, if present, from the closest containing loops, otherwise it is retrieved from the environment, as if you had written `#ENV{id_article}`.
