<txp:mdm_if_category>

Not sure if there’s a better way to do this…

This plugin is used as such:

<pre> <txp:mdm_if_category category=”…”>stuff goes here</txp:mdm_if_category>
</pre>

The category attribute is optional. If missing, the stuff always shows.
If category is the empty string <tt>”“</tt>, the stuff shows only if no category is current for the page.
If category is some other string, the stuff shows only if the current category name matches.

It’s simply a string based comparison, so it will probably break when true hierarchical categories are available; I’ll have to fix it then.

Here’s an example to give you a better idea of how it might work on a page:

<pre> <ul> <txp:mdm_if_category> <li>will always display</li> </txp:mdm_if_category> <txp:mdm_if_category category=”“> <li>displays only if no category selected</li> </txp:mdm_if_category> <txp:mdm_if_category category=“Mass Transit”> <li>displays only if Mass Transit category selected</li> </txp:mdm_if_category> <txp:mdm_if_category category=“vx”> <li>displays only if vx category selected</li> </txp:mdm_if_category> </ul>
</pre>

I’m stupid and forgot the link. Edited the original post and added the link.

The download link does not work for me; all I get is this:

The plugin is encoded. Save this as a text file and then upload to TXP.

Re: <txp:mdm_if_category>

I see, I was expecting a zip file;
The help (?) in the TP back-end could have a one line help text insted of a blank popup….

Re: <txp:mdm_if_category>

Ummmm….. I don’t know. =)
I’m more familiar with the data side of TXP and less the processing side. I don’t know how/when txp tags get processed in relation to overall php stuff. My gut instinct says it won’t work, but I have no basis nor evidence to back that up.

Best idea would be to try it?

Re: <txp:mdm_if_category>

okay thanks, I’ve been away from my installation of txp so I’ll be able to check it out in a few days, I think it probably won’t work either since most tags I’ve tried don’t seem to take them. Worth a shot though I guess.
