I just need to check if one field artist_gallery:image in a grid field is set, if not the markup should not be rendered. This syntax {if "{artist_gallery:total_rows}” > 0} or {if artist_gallery:total_rows > 0} is not working ... if there is no image, the markup is rendered.

Any ideas? Thank you!

    {if "{artist_gallery:total_rows}" > 0}
 <div id="artistgallery">
  <div class="cycle-slideshow">
    <img src="{artist_gallery:image}">
  <div id="adv-custom-pager" ></div>
  <div class="clb"></div>
  • What is {artist_gallery:total_rows} printing out in your template?

    I'm using the format: {if artist_gallery:total_rows >= 2} and that's working for me

I've now discovered that it is a bug in 2.9.2 and there is a fix, see this question and the answers: Grid Conditionals not working
