Using Views shortcodes
You can use some of the Views shortcodes in the if-expression of the wpv-conditional shortcode. This allows you to use conditional logic on the output you get from those shortcodes.
The list of all Views shortcodes that can be used in conditional statements is available in the Conditional output GUI when you select “Views Shortcodes” in the Data origin dropdown.
Checking the type of the post displayed
[wpv-conditional if="( '[wpv-post-type]' eq 'post' )"]This is a post[/wpv-conditional]
Checking If A Post Excerpt Exists
You can test the output generated by a View shortcode for a non-empty value
[wpv-conditional if="( '[wpv-post-excerpt]' ne '' )"] <h3>More about the consultant</h3> [wpv-post-excerpt] [/wpv-conditional]
Checking For The Current User Data
Use the wpv-current-user shortcode to find the current user and display text based on who he is.
[wpv-conditional if="( '[wpv-current-user]' eq 'bruce' )"]Bruce is logged in now [/wpv-conditional]
If you need to check if the user is logged-in and then display something based on that condition, you can use the following code.
[wpv-conditional if="( '[wpv-current-user info='logged_in']' eq 'true' )"] I am logged in [/wpv-conditional] [wpv-conditional if="( '[wpv-current-user info='logged_in']' eq 'false' )"] I am logged out [/wpv-conditional]
Checking taxonomy shortcodes
Visit the page about displaying taxonomies conditionally to see how you can use wpv-post-taxonomy and wpv-taxonomy-slug shortcodes in your conditions.
Checking Types plugin shortcodes
Shortcodes from Types plugin, that are used to display custom fields or user meta fields can be also used in the conditional statements.
[wpv-conditional if=" '[types field="consultant-price-per-hour"][/types]' gt '0' "] Price per hour: [types field="consultant-price-per-hour"][/types] [/wpv-conditional] [wpv-conditional if="( '[types usermeta="user-signature"][/types]' ne '' )"] How do you do [types usermeta="user-signature"][/types] [/wpv-conditional]
Checking Custom shortcodes
You can use custom shortcodes in your conditions. For this, the “manage_options” capability is required, meaning that only admins can do this.
Before being used, all custom shortcodes need to be registered. To do so, visit the Toolset -> Settings page and click the Front-end Content tab. There, simply add your function to the Functions inside conditional evaluations section.
[wpv-conditional if="( '[extra_features]' ne '' )"]Extra features: [extra_features][/wpv-conditional]
