The issue is that entries are in several categories and can be Featured (a FieldPack pill with yes/no options) but only want certain categories to show the entry.

So I have a featured_listing_category WB Category fieldtype setup.

I had this worked out but apparently still not working the way expected. I have the following code:

{if !'{exp:phpstringfun function="strpos" par1="{featured_listing_category}"}{segment_4_category_id}{/exp:phpstringfun}’}

With {featured_listing_category} outputting 399|400 and {segment_4_category_id} outputting 372

I'm trying to test whether {segment_4_category_id} is included with {featured_listing_category}.

If it helps here is my template snippet:

      {if segment_5 ==''} category="{segment_2_category_id}&{segment_4_category_id}"{/if}
      {if segment_5} category="{segment_6_category_id}&{segment_4_category_id}"{/if}
{if !'{exp:phpstringfun function="strpos" par1="{segment_4_category_id}"}{featured_listing_category}{/exp:phpstringfun}'}
    <div class="listingItem featuredListing">
      <div class="featuredIcon"></div><!-- /.featuredIcon -->
      <div class="image">
        {if main_image}
        {exp:ce_img:pair src="{main_image}" width="165" height="165" allow_scale_larger="yes" crop="yes|center|center" }<a href="/listing/details/{url_title}"><img src="{made}" width="{w}" height="{h}" alt="" /></a>{/exp:ce_img:pair}
        {if main_image ==''}
        <img src="/uploads/default_listingItemImage.jpg" alt="" />
      </div><!-- /.image -->
      <div class="content">
        <div class="buttonReviews">
          <p><a href="/listing/details/{url_title}/{segment_2}/{segment_4}" class="btn orange">View Listing</a></p>
          <div class="reviews">
            {exp:rating:stats collection="Book Reviews" entry_id="{entry_id}" precision="1"}
              {if rating_no_results}<p><a href="/listing/details/{url_title}/">Rate This Listing</a></p>{/if}
          </div><!-- /.reviews -->
        </div><!-- /.buttonReviews -->
        <h3><a href="/listing/details/{url_title}">{title}</a></h3>
        {addresses limit="3"}
        <p>{if company_name}{company_name}<br />{/if}{if address1}{address1}{/if} {address2} {if city}<br>{city}, {/if} {if state}{state}{/if} {if phone}<br>Phone: {phone}{/if} {if website_url}<br> <a href="http://{website_url}" target="_blank">{website_url}</a>{/if}</p>
        {if row_count == total_rows && total_rows > 1}
        <p><a href="/listing/details/{url_title}/">See More</a></p>
        {if overview}
      </div><!-- /.content -->
      <div class="clearfix"></div><!-- /.clearfix -->
    </div><!-- /.listingItem -->

{if "|{featured_listing_category}|" *= "|{segment_4_category_id}|"}
    {!-- Is Included --}
    {!-- Isn't Included --}

Outputs as example:

{if "|399|400|" contains "|372|"}

Pipes required either side to ensure partial cats don't get incorrectly matched, e.g. 399 contains 39.

  • Using {if "|{featured_listing_category}|" *= "|{segment_4_category_id}|"} testing {/if} inside my exp:channel:entries gets me a Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in error. Nov 12, 2015 at 20:14
  • Same error with {if "|399|400|" *= "|400|"} testing {/if} too :\\ Nov 12, 2015 at 20:22
  • Issue is with *= never used that before w/EE. Is that available w/2.7.3? Nov 12, 2015 at 20:26
  • looks like =* is only a 2.9 thing :/// Nov 12, 2015 at 20:49
  • upgrading EE, will let you know if that works after that! Nov 13, 2015 at 1:05
