if a category has article

I’m posting vacancies (articles) on my vacancy category and chosing expiry date as well to hide when expired.
now i want to list articles which is not expired, if there is no article to show then i want to appear a text “currently no vacancy avalible”


<txp:article_custom category="vacancy" limit="5">
   <li><txp:title /></li>
</txp:article_custom>

Re: if a category has article

HI raminrahimi
would this work?

<txp:variable name="hasvacancy"><txp:article_custom category="vacancy" limit="1" break="" wraptag=""><txp:article_id /></txp:article_custom></txp:variable>
<txp:if_variable name="hasvacancy" value="">
<txp:article_custom category="vacancy" limit="5" wraptag="ul">
<li><txp:title /></li>
</txp:article_custom>
<txp:else />
<p>There is no vacancy available</p>
</txp:if_variable>

Re: if a category has article

or use plugin aks_article

<txp:aks_article category="vacancy" limit="5" wraptag="ul" break="li">
	<txp:title />
<txp:else />
	<p>There is no vacancy available</p>
</txp:aks_article>

aks_cron : Cron inside Textpattern | aks_article : extended article_custom tag
aks_cache : cache for TxP | aks_dragdrop : Drag&Drop categories (article, link, image, file)

Re: if a category has article

I guess Yiannis means

<txp:variable name="hasvacancy"><txp:article_custom category="vacancy" limit="5" wraptag="ul" break="li">
    <txp:title />
</txp:article_custom></txp:variable>

<txp:if_variable name="hasvacancy" value="">
    <p>There is no vacancy available</p>
<txp:else />
    <txp:variable name="hasvacancy" />
</txp:if_variable>

In 4.7, <txp:evaluate /> will make it easier:

<txp:evaluate>
    <txp:article_custom category="vacancy" limit="5" wraptag="ul" break="li">
        <txp:title />
    </txp:article_custom>
<txp:else />
    <p>There is no vacancy available</p>
</txp:evaluate>

Independently, would <txp:else /> in <txp:article /> à la aks_article be useful and not confusing?

Edit: by confusing I mean you will not be able to use form attribute if <txp:else /> is present, you’ll have to write

<txp:article_custom>
    <txp:output_form form="my_form" />
<txp:else />
    nada
</txp:artilce_custom>

Hi Oleg, I guess both would work but yours is more efficient as it does not have to call for the articles twice.

Re: if a category has article

Hi Yiannis, actually the if/else logic is switched in yours :-)
