IF ELSE syntax

Post by Vogelek23 » Sun May 05, 2019 10:22 pm

Hi all,

I want to create some IF-ELSE clause based on a multiple checks, which sets the active class only if:
- topic is not marked as solved OR, topic does not come from a Download subforum (only one of these can be true, no possibility that the topic is marked as solved and comes from Download subforum at the same time),
- topic must have unread posts.

I have created such an IF-ELSE clause:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF searchres.UNREAD_POSTS and (not searchres.DOWNLOAD_SECTION or not searchres.RESOLVED) --> (active class) <!-- ELSE --> (passive class) <!-- ENDIF -->
... but this does not work - it does not recognise Download nor Solved checks and (when it has some unread posts) automatically sets the active class even if the topic comes from Download subforum or is marked as solved. So I assume the above code has wrong syntax. What should be the right one?

In the PHP code it should be like this:

Code: Select all

if ($row['unread_posts'] && (!$row['topic_solved'] || !$row['come_from_download']))
{
 	(active class)
}
else
{
	(passive class)
}
Thanks in advance for your help!

EDIT: This code works (sets active class only if the topic has unread posts and does not come from Download section) if I remove the brackets from IF clause:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF searchres.UNREAD_POSTS and not searchres.DOWNLOAD_SECTION --> (active class) <!-- ELSE --> (passive class) <!-- ENDIF -->
EDIT 2: Went a step forward and, finally, found the proper syntax:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF searchres.UNREAD_POSTS and not (searchres.DOWNLOAD_SECTION or searchres.RESOLVED) --> (active class) <!-- ELSE --> (passive class) <!-- ENDIF -->
Now the active class is set only as intended.
