Re: in a section, choice of viewing articles by date or category

Can somebody please help me understanding how the chs_if_urlvar plugin is implemented. Locally i can install it but i could not figure out how to get it to work – even though i read Rachels post a couple of times.

Re: in a section, choice of viewing articles by date or category

Alexandra, try out this example, it may help:

<p>Question: what is your favourite kind of dark carbonated beverage?</p>

<ul>
	<li><a href="?soda=root-beer">A&amp;W Root Beer</a></li>
	<li><a href="?soda=coke">Coca-Cola</a></li>
	<li><a href="?soda=pepsi">Pepsi</a></li>
</ul>

<txp:chs_urlvar_default var="soda">

	<txp:chs_if_urlvar var="soda" value="root-beer">
		<p>Your answer: A&amp;W Root Beer Root Beer</p>
	</txp:chs_if_urlvar>

	<txp:chs_if_urlvar var="soda" value="coke">
		<p>Your answer: Coca-Cola</p>
	</txp:chs_if_urlvar>

	<txp:chs_if_urlvar var="soda" value="pepsi">
		<p>Your answer: Pepsi</p>
	</txp:chs_if_urlvar>

</txp:chs_urlvar_default>

Edit: corrected code

Re: in a section, choice of viewing articles by date or category

Thanks sooo much mary!!! That is a great step forward. I checked your code locallly and it works perfect. I hope to figure out the rest on my own. Thx again.

btw. mary´s code example above is not quite correct.

Correct ist:

<code><txp:chs_if_urlvar var=“soda” value=“root-beer”>
<p>Your answer: A&amp;W Root Beer Root Beer</p>
</txp:chs_if_urlvar> … </code>

</txp:chs_urlvar_default>

Why this doesn’t work for me.

I always get this errors:

<code>
tag_error <txp:chs_urlvar_default var=“soda”> -> Notice: Undefined index: soda on line 8
tag_error <txp:chs_if_urlvar var=“soda” value=“root-beer”> -> Notice: Undefined index: soda on line 3
tag_error <txp:chs_if_urlvar var=“soda” value=“coke”> -> Notice: Undefined index: soda on line 3
tag_error <txp:chs_if_urlvar var=“soda” value=“pepsi”> -> Notice: Undefined index: soda on line 3

You’ll need to talk to the plugin’s creator to fix it, but, if you change your production status from debugging Textpattern will hide those notices.

Yes I can hide the notices, but the real problem is that the plugin doesen’t work.

</code>
</blockquote>

First of all, it shouldn’t work, since chs_urlvar_default will only activate if the variable is not passed to the page. Thus, if the chs_if_urlvar tags are reached, you know that the value of “soda” is null. If you change chs_urlvar_default to chs_urlvar_exists it will work.

As for the debug messages, they can be solved too. I’ll look into them when I’m slightly more awake.
