Aloha to all,

I'm wanting to show a side_news_archive block only if the user is on the news archive page. I know that inside the side panel editor, I need to wrap the block with a tempcode directive for the page, but I couldn't figure out exactly how to list the page link in the directive. I tried this -- {+START,IF,{$PAGE,site:news:type=misc}} -- and variations of it, but not working yet. 
Thank you

Close! One of these should work…

{+START,IF,{$MATCH_KEY_MATCH,site:news:type=misc}}...{+END}

{+START,IF,{$EQ,{$PAGE},news}}...{+END}

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
