Let's say you wanted something to show in an html file for registered users only, then you could use the following

Code: Select all
<!-- IF S_REGISTERED_USER -->Hello, welcome to<!-- ENDIF -->

Which will only show to registered users.


Code: Select all
<!-- IF FORUM_ID eq 2 -->Welcome to Forum Number 2<!-- ENDIF -->

Which will only show if the viewer is within Forum Id #2.

You can also combine the IF's

Code: Select all
<!-- IF FORUM_ID eq 2 and S_REGISTERED_USER -->Welcome to Forum ID #2 and you are a registered user<!-- ENDIF -->

Also, you can use the following operands as well

or ( || )
and ( && )
eq ( == )

You can use either the language ones (or, and, eq) or the other ones ( ||, &&, ==).

Remember each time you have a <!-- IF something --> statement you must also have an ending <!-- ENDIF --> statement, else you will get errors when the templating engine does it's stuff.
