    Hello there,

    I’ve tried a few different methods seen on boards here a few days ago but the html code I put in didn’t load the email address or URL. I inserted ‘click here’ instead and it worked, sort of.

    Then I realized that I needed to find a way to hide custom attribute fields that did not have data in them because having a ‘click here’ link that goes nowhere is confusing to a user.

    I attempted to go the more complicated route by adding conditional placeholders for my custom attributes by following the tutorial provided/created by the plugin’s authors. Then I decided to use the alternate text method to display a ‘n/a’ if no data was entered into a field to simplify things. As well as help maintain a standard layout for user submitted events.

    NOW – I’d like to resolve making fields that have an email address or a url in them load the text that has been entered when it has been entered and display the alternate text of {n/a} when there is nothing to display/show.

    If anyone knows how to do this I’d appreciate the direction. Here is what I’m working with now:

    <p>
    <strong>Event Details</strong><br />
    Open To The Public - #_ATT{Open To The Public?}{Yes|No|}<br />
    Coordinator Name - #_ATT{Coordinator Name}{ Coordinator Name:  {n/a}<br />
    Event Phone:  #_ATT{Event Phone}{n/a}<br />
    Event Email:   #_ATT{Event Email}{n/a}<br />
    Event Registration URL:  #_ATT{Event Registration URL}{n/a}
    </p>

    Thanks for the help.
