This plugin provides a number of conditional tests for custom fields. It will check for empty, notempty, equals, or notequals. It also includes an clause, so that the inverse of each test may have a false consequence as well.

example usage:

<txp:mdn_if_custom field="2" empty="1"> <else /> Author: <txp:rei_show_custom customid="2" /> </txp:mdn_if_custom>

…where if custom_field2 is empty, it will output nothing, and if custom_field2 is filled, it will print what is after the . In this case, since ‘Remillard’ was the etnry for custom_field2, it would print:

Author: Remillard

another example:

<txp:mdn_if_custom field="9" equal="author">by <txp:rei_show_custom customid="2" /> <else /> no author listed </txp:mdn_if_custom>

…where if custom_field9 is filled with the exact text “author”, then it will print
by <em>'name of author'</em>

but if custom_field9 is either empty OR filled with anything other than “author”, it will print

no author listed
