Support » Plugin: Modal Dialog » How to use PHP Condition

    Hi all,
    I’m pretty new to PHP.
    I want the Modal to show on page with ID 371 when a variable has a specific value.
    Say on page ID 371 I have set:
    $modal = 'A';
    Then in the settings of the Modal I set at the PHP Condition line:
    if($modal == 'A');

    Changing the variable on that page to, say, ‘B’, that doesn’t make any difference.
    The modal keeps showing up.
    I have checked the ‘Only show on specific pages and single posts’ and specified the page ID 371 on ‘Pages and posts to display Modal Dialog ‘.
    Any clues anyone?

    You should not put if and semi-colon, only what is between parentheses.

    $modal == ‘A’

    That being said, you are going to get in a scope issue. Where are you trying to set that PHp variable? It will not be available from an a shortcode callback function. If you want a shortcode to optionally display on a page, a better bet would be to put a GET variable in the URL. For example:

    http://mysite.com?p=371&showdialog=1

    Then your condition could be:

    is_page(371) && isset( $_GET[‘showdialog’] ) && $_GET[‘showdialog’])
