[resolved] An If statement for a specific value (3 posts)

    Context:
    Creating a template for a custom post type that lists scholarly publications. Two sections are listed: "published" and "accepted". Each publication has a key (publication_status) with values of either "accepted" or "published".

    Question:
    Using an if statement, I'd like to put the ones marked "published" under the published sub-heading and the ones marked "accepted" under the accepted sub-heading. I'm new to PHP in this area and if you have a quick sample of code I could follow, that'd be great. Also, if you have particular resource sites on if statements that you go to often.

    Thanks for any AND all assistance!

    This seems to be working for just one part of the publication details. I'll see if I can't use it to get me going for my original question:

    <?php if ( get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_online_access', true)): ?>
    		<h4 class="publication_online_access">Online Access:</h4>
    		<p><a href="<?php echo get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_online_access', true); ?>"><?php echo get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_online_access', true); ?></a></p>
    	<?php endif; ?>

    I solved my own issue using get_posts for two different loops:

    <!-- IF status is "published" list here -->
    <?php
    $args = array( 'post_type' => 'publication', 'meta_value'=> 'published', 'orderby' => 'title' );
    $published_publications = get_posts( $args );
    echo '<h3>Published</h3>';
    foreach ($published_publications as $post) :  setup_postdata($post); ?>
    	<div class="publication">
    		<h4 class="publication_title"><?php single_post_title(); ?></h4>
    		<?php echo get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_apa_citation', true); ?>
    
    		<?php if ( get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_online_access', true)): ?>
    			<h4 class="publication_online_access">Online Access:</h4>
    			<p><a href="<?php echo get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_online_access', true); ?>"><?php echo get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_online_access', true); ?></a></p>
    		<?php endif; ?>
    
    		<?php if ( get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_abstract', true)): ?>
    			<h4 class="publication_abstract">Abstract:</h4>
    			<p><?php echo get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_abstract', true); ?></p>
    		<?php endif; ?>
    	</div><!-- .publication -->
    <?php endforeach; ?>
    
    <!-- IF status is "accepted" list here -->
    <?php
    $args = array( 'post_type' => 'publication', 'meta_value'=> 'accepted', 'orderby' => 'title' );
    $published_publications = get_posts( $args );
    echo '<h3>Accepted</h3>';
    foreach ($published_publications as $post) :  setup_postdata($post); ?>
    	<div class="publication">
    		<h4 class="publication_title"><?php single_post_title(); ?></h4>
    		<?php echo get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_apa_citation', true); ?>
    
    		<?php if ( get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_online_access', true)): ?>
    			<h4 class="publication_online_access">Online Access:</h4>
    			<p><a href="<?php echo get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_online_access', true); ?>"><?php echo get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_online_access', true); ?></a></p>
    		<?php endif; ?>
    
    		<?php if ( get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_abstract', true)): ?>
    			<h4 class="publication_abstract">Abstract:</h4>
    			<p><?php echo get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'publication_abstract', true); ?></p>
    		<?php endif; ?>
    	</div><!-- .publication -->
    <?php endforeach; ?>
