  • Syntax to Include a Category Prefix and Exclude a Category Suffix

    Hello,

    I need to be able to exclude a category suffix in the code below. I am using the following code to include any category that has the prefix "GCD_" and want it to exclude the two categories with the suffix "_BBG" and "_CAG".

    <mvt:if expr="'GCD_' CIN l.settings:category:code">
    do this
    </mvt:if>

    Is there an easy way to do this instead of having a line that would basically include 40+ categories? I am concerned with the line getting too long and slowing things down.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    Try:

    Code:
    <mvt:if expr="'GCD_' CIN l.settings:category:code">
    <mvt:if expr="NOT ('_BBG,_CAG' CIN l.settings:category:code)">
    do this
    </mvt:if>
    </mvt:if>

      I don't think that second expression will work because its going to look for "_BBG,_CAG" in the l.settings category code. You would have to write it out as AND NOT( '_BBG' CIN l.settings:category:code) AND NOT( '_CAG' CIN l.settings:category:code).

      You can also just add this to the first expression.

        Thanks, this one did the trick!

        <mvt:if expr="'GCD_' CIN l.settings:category:code">
        <mvt:if expr="NOT ('_BBG,_CAG' CIN l.settings:category:code)">
        do this
        </mvt:if>
        </mvt:if>
