Re: Authors listings only if more than 1 author exists

Cool! So just to clarify, the code for my OT would be this, yes?…

<txp:article_custom pgonly="AuthorID" />

Is there a way to wire something up so it also affects the query in this case? Or is that going to really make things confusing?

I think (to test) you can filter via category attribute:

<txp:article_custom category pgonly="Category1" />

though it will output an empty string instead of 0 (will fix).

Hmmm, I still get the same count out (22 in this case) when I’m expecting 21, excluding the empty row. That’s a neat solution though if it works.

Well, category translates as (Category1 != '') OR (Category2 != ''), and we count distinct Category1. Is it possible that you have an article with empty Category1 but not empty Category2?

Highly probable.

Then you should query for

<txp:article_custom category match="Category1" pgonly="Category1" />

Re: Authors listings only if more than 1 author exists

I can also confirm the new functionality allows me to enable/disable multi-author features in my theme – so that’s great stuff. Thanks Oleg!
