If article author

On this page:

Syntax

<txp:if_article_author>

The if_article_author tag is a conditional tag and always used as an opening and closing pair, like this…

<txp:if_article_author>
    ...conditional statement...
</txp:if_article_author>

The tag will execute the contained statement if the author name associated with a particular article matches the value of the name attribute. Should be used in an ‘article’ type form.

Note: The name attribute requires an author’s login name not their real name.

Attributes

Tag will accept the following attributes (case-sensitive):

name="author"
Comma-separated list of author names.
Default: unset (i.e. any author at all).

Examples

Example 1: Display some text dependent on an article’s author

<p>
    <txp:author />
    <txp:if_article_author name="admin">
        (Administrator)
    </txp:if_article_author>
</p>

Displays article author name, then displays the text “(Administrator)” if the article was written (posted) by the author admin.
