I am trying to display one entry (most recent) on my home page from 2 different channels. So ChannelA and ChannelB.

{exp:weblog:entries weblog="weblogA|weblogB" limit="1" sort="asc" show_future_entries="yes"}
{if weblog == "weblogA"} display A {/if}
{if weblog == "weblogB"} display B {/if}
{/exp:weblog:entries}

The above worked on an EE1 site but but now on an EE2 site and channel does not work the same.

{exp:channel:entries channel="channelA|channelB" limit="1" sort="asc" show_future_entries="yes"}
{if channel == "channelA"} display A {/if}
{if channel == "channelB"} display B {/if}
{/exp:channel:entries}

Any advice?

    Which is the EECMS version? I'm asking because you say "channel", but your code shows "weblog". Version 2 uses channel and version 1 uses weblog.

    sorry if that was confusing. I used this method in an EE1 site and it worked fine, but I tried to use the same method using channels instead of weblogs and it didn't seem to work at all. I am using EE2.6 Oct 25, 2013 at 12:07

You are looking for channel_name

{exp:channel:entries channel="channelA|channelB" limit="1" sort="asc" show_future_entries="yes"}
  {if channel_name == "channelA"} display A {/if}
  {if channel_name == "channelB"} display B {/if}
{/exp:channel:entries}

    And that first comment reads "{channel_name} ...is a shorthand of {channel_short_name}"

Assuming you are using EE1 you'll want to use weblog_short_name or weblog_id in your conditionals.

{if weblog_short_name == "some_weblog_name"}
    ...
{/if}

OR

{if weblog_id == "1"}
    ...
{/if}

As Robson pointed out "weblog" is specific to EE1. So if you are using EE2 just replace the word "weblog" with "channel."
