The if_article_id tag is a conditional tag and always used as an opening and closing pair, like this…

    …conditional statement…

The tag will execute the contained statement if the article id associated with a particular article matches the id attribute. Should be used in an article form/container. The id attribute must be used in an article list context (when producing a page that displays more than one article) or the tag will do nothing.


Tag will accept the following attributes (case-sensitive) as well as the global attributes :

Comma delimited integer article ID list.
Default: current article’s ID if available (i.e. on a page that displays a single article).


Example 1: Display info if the article id matches

<txp:if_article_id id="33">
        <txp:title />

Displays the article title if the id of the current article is 33.

Other tags used: title.

Example 2: Display a list of articles omitting current article

<txp:article_custom label="related" labeltag="h4" section="<txp:section />" wraptag="ul">
    <txp:else />
                <txp:title />
