check if viewing category/author in section context

Hi again gurus,

Can you let me know how I can check whether a category/author list is being viewed within a section context? i.e. when viewed via…

<txp:category title link this_section />
<txp:author link this_section />

…as opposed to the sectionless…

<txp:category title link />
<txp:author link />

Thanks all!

Re: check if viewing category/author in section context

Does <txp:if_section /> not work?

Re: check if viewing category/author in section context

Hi again, is there a more DRY way of writing this in Textpattern? Seems like a lot of repeated code to me which I’m sure there’s a clever way to reduce?

<nav class="breadcrumbs-container" aria-label="<txp:text item="breadcrumb_nav" />">
    <ol class="breadcrumbs" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/BreadcrumbList">
        <li itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/ListItem">
            <a itemprop="item" href="<txp:site_url />"><span itemprop="name"><txp:text item="home" /></span></a>
            <meta itemprop="position" content="1">
        </li>
        <txp:if_search>
            <li class="current" itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/ListItem">
                <b itemprop="name" aria-current="location"><txp:text item="search_results" /></b>
                <meta itemprop="item" content="<txp:site_url />?q=">
                <meta itemprop="position" content="2">
            </li>
        <txp:else />
            <txp:if_author>
                <txp:if_section>
                    <li itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/ListItem">

Re: check if viewing category/author in section context

As far as I can see, a common pattern is

            <li class="current" itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/ListItem">
                <b itemprop="name" aria-current="location"><!-- name --></b>
                <meta itemprop="item" content="<!-- item -->">
                <meta itemprop="position" content="<!-- position -->">
            </li>

You could try to fill <!-- items --> inside your conditional blocks, like

            <txp:if_author>
                <txp:variable name="name" value='<txp:author />' />
                <txp:if_section>
                    <li itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/ListItem">
                        <a itemprop="item" href="<txp:section url />"><span itemprop="name"><txp:section title /></span></a>
                        <meta itemprop="position" content="2">
                    </li>
                    <txp:variable name="position" value="3" />
                <txp:else />
                    <txp:variable name="position" value="2" />
                <txp:if_section>
            <txp:else />
....

and the append the common block after conditionals:

            <li class="current" itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/ListItem">
                <b itemprop="name" aria-current="location"><txp:variable name="name" /></b>
                <meta itemprop="item" content="<txp:variable name="item" >">
                <meta itemprop="position" content="<txp:variable name="position" />">
            </li>
