Contents

Syntax

<txp:if_section>

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

<txp:if_section>
    …conditional statement…
</txp:if_section>

The tag will execute the contained statements if the called page is part of the section specified with the name attribute.

Attributes

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

name="section"
Comma-separated list of section names. For the default section, either use the text default or a single comma , (for example, both name=", other_section" and name="default, other_section" are equivalent).

Examples

Example 1: Conditionally display text for a section

<txp:if_section name="about">
    <p>Danger, ego pages ahead!</p>
<txp:else />
    <p>Nothing. Just nothing. Any ideas? Anybody?</p>
</txp:if_section>

Other tags used: else.

Example 2: Omit text from a section

<txp:if_section not name="about,cheeses">
    <p>This text appears on every section <em>apart from</em> the 'about' and 'cheeses' sections.</p>
</txp:if_section>

Example 3: Add a special class to mark the currently active section

<nav>
    <ul>
        <li<txp:if_section name=", article"> class="active"</txp:if_section>>
            <txp:section link="1" title="1" name="" />
        </li>
        <li<txp:if_section name="portfolio"> class="active"</txp:if_section>>
            <txp:section link="1" title="1" name="portfolio" />
        </li>
        <li<txp:if_section name="about"> class="active"</txp:if_section>>
            <txp:section link="1" title="1" name="about" />
        </li>
    </ul>
</nav>

A different way of marking the active section can be accomplished by using section_list and its attribute active_class. While the above snippet will mark the list item, section_list will mark solely the link.

Other tags used: section.
