{exp:channel:entries channel="games" limit="1" dynamic="yes"}
    {if item == "PS3"}test{/if} 

I set this up in a testing template and oddly, the curly braces aren't even parsing, here's what I'm getting:

{if "PC" == "PS3"}PS3{/if} PC {if "PS3" == "PS3"}PS3{/if} PS3 {if "Xbox 360" == "PS3"}PS3{/if} Xbox 360

Am I doing something wrong?

    What kind of field is game_options? What version of EE? Do other conditionals in other fields work? Oct 25 '13 at 13:22

    What happens with {if "{item}" == ..... ? Oct 25 '13 at 14:44
  • @DerekHogue game_platforms is a checkbox field. Other conditionals seem to be working fine in the rest of the template, but within the {game_platforms} nothing is parsing, even {if username == "Jake"} won't work.

  • What version of EE? Oct 25 '13 at 17:25

This is a bug noted in EE2.5.3+ - https://support.ellislab.com/bugs/detail/18336 - I ran into this one myself.

It's been fixed as of EE2.7.2 - http://ellislab.com/expressionengine/user-guide/about/changelog.html#version-2-7-2 (bug #19624)

  • Ah, thank you for your help. Do you know of any way to fix it without upgrading?

  • I don't think there was a fix, however if you use {game_platforms} <span>{item}</span> {/game_platforms} does that still output what you need? Oct 28 '13 at 11:10
  • Unfortunately no, I do need the condition.

You may get this to work:

{if game_platforms == "PS3"}PS3{/if} 
{if game_platforms == "PC"}PC{/if} 
{if game_platforms == "XBOX"}XBOX{/if}
