Re: smd_if: Generic multiple if condition tests

saccade, you are welcome.
BTW, you could have used txp:if_article_section, couldn’t you?

Re: smd_if: Generic multiple if condition tests

Maniqui: Blame me – I could, of course. Why on earth didn’t I think about that? (Surely because I had some more difficult things in mind I wanted to do with smd_if.)
But of course

<txp:if_article_section name='<txp:sac_special_groups_privs />' > ...   <txp:else />   ...  </txp:if_article_section>

should do as well. I even had planned my special_groups_privs-code to get a comma-separated list needed for such a thing.
Thank you for pointing into that direction! :)

Re: smd_if: Generic multiple if condition tests

Am facing a really weird situation while displaying articles on the default page that have custom fields. When using the code below, I see nothing and surprisingly if I change the limit to 999, that articles show. I tried this with the if_custom_field tag as well, and it’s the same, so not sure what could be going wrong…

on default page:

<ul>
<txp:article_custom section="my-section" limit="9" form="some-form" sort="rand()" />
</ul>

in some-form:

<txp:smd_if field="my_custom_field_name" operator="eq" value="yes">
<li><a href="<txp:permlink />">Some link in here</a></li>
</txp:smd_if>

Appreciate any help!

Re: smd_if: Generic multiple if condition tests

Husain it would be helpful to know if the limit="9" output has articles with value="yes".

Logic:

  1. Nine articles
  2. No custom field
  3. No output

Edit: Please check Display 5 most recent articles with same custom field value

Edit2: From article_custom doc (see example 4)

customfieldname=“value”

  • Restrict to articles with specified value for specified custom field name. Replace “customfieldname” with the name of the custom field.
  • Default: unset.

Edit3: Code

<txp:article_custom section="my-section" 
my_custom_field_name="yes" 
limit="9" 
sort="rand()" 
wraptag="ul" 
break="li">
<a href="<txp:permlink />">Some link in here</a>
</txp:article_custom>

PS: Through this TXP core tag solution the problem becomes off topic as no txp:smd_if is needed anymore :)

Re: smd_if: Generic multiple if condition tests

merzi has answered this much better than I could have, but I would guess in simple terms the reason this has happened is:

the line

<txp:article_custom section="my-section" limit="9" form="some-form" sort="rand()" />

is telling TXP to go look at the first 9 articles. The form you use looks through 9 articles and any it find with your custom field set the way you want, it returns. After the 9, it returns. So, if the articles you are looking for are not in the first 9, you won’t see any.

I’ve had this too.

What I do is set the limit to 999 and then in the subsequent form, I limit the return to 9. I think I do that limit by doing a second article_custom, but I’m not certain and not able to check right now.

Hope that helps explain at least. Good luck! Cheers, -Alan

Re: smd_if: Generic multiple if condition tests

I tried searching, but couldn’t find an answer… can someone provide a example of how I would use smd_if to test for localhost (or maybe specific domain)? I see I could use aam_if_host, but it would be nice if I didn’t have to install another plugin

Try something like this (untested) :

<txp:smd_if field="svrvar:SERVER_NAME" operator="in"
     value="localhost/somedomain.com/otherdomain.com">
   <p>Yep, it's one of the domains in the list</p>
<txp:else />
   <p>Nope, not one of the domains</p>
</txp:smd_if>

Re: smd_if: Generic multiple if condition tests

Hey Stef,

Does this mean a holy grail of settings-ness I would love to have could be constructed (I assume not but had to ask)

File: /textpattern/config.php

<txp:smd_if this_is_my_dev_domain>
<my dev/local settings />
<txp:else />
<my live/web settings />
</txp:smd_if>

?

Thanks for any comment :) Cheers, -Alan

Nice thought, but sadly not. In config.php you can’t run plugins (they’re not loaded at the point it’s read) so you’d still have to do this kind of thing by hand. And even if you could, using smd_if is probably like beating a thumb tack into the wall with a snowboard!
