[Gelöst] Conditional output based on child post

Dieser Thread wurde gelöst. Hier ist eine Beschreibung des Problems und der Lösung.

Problem: Conditional output based on child post

Solution: To display conditional content based on the child posts with pre-Types 3.X.X, you need to use custom shortcode with [wpv-conditional] shortcode.

You can find proposed solution, in this case, with the following reply: https://toolset.com/forums/topic/conditional-output-based-on-child-post/#post-921710

Hello,

I have a postype "objet" which is parent from a postype "wishlist"
In the "objet" content template, I need to define a conditional output based on the following statement :
- a child "wishlist" post exist for the displayed objet
- it has the same author than the current logged in user

Can you help on this as I have not been able to find the right way to make it!
Thanks
Pat

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

Well - you can use following shortcode to check if any child post exists for your currently displayed parent.

Add following shortcode to your current theme's functions.php file:

function func_child_post_exists( $atts ){
	global $post;
		return toolset_get_related_post( $post->ID, 'state-city','child');
}
add_shortcode( 'child-post-exists', 'func_child_post_exists' );

Where:
- Replace 'state-city' with your post -relationship slug.

Now, call the function as given under:

[wpv-conditional if="( '[child-post-exists]' eq '0' )"]
 no child post available
[/wpv-conditional]


[wpv-conditional if="( '[child-post-exists]' ne '0' )"]
 Yes - yes child post available
[/wpv-conditional]

Where:
- Register shortcode name child-post-exists at :
=> Tooset => Settings => Front-end Content => Third-party shortcode arguments

Now, regarding your another query, do you want to check that post author is same as loggedin user?

Hi Minesh,

Thanks for your support.
I have tried your solution and the result is a blank page !
Even if I place only the shortcode (without conditional) !

For info, I have replaced 'state-city' with the slug of the postype that is child of the "objet" that is displayed in this page (content template of objet) which is 'wishlist'

Concerning your last question, yes I want to check also that post author is same as loggedin user

Regards
Pat

Ok - great, Well - you do not need to replace post type name but post relationship slug.

Could you please share problem URL and access details so I can check whats going wrong there.

*** Please make a FULL BACKUP of your database and website.***
I would also eventually need to request temporary access (WP-Admin and FTP) to your site. Preferably to a test site where the problem has been replicated if possible in order to be of better help and check if some configurations might need to be changed.

I would additionally need your permission to de- and re-activate Plugins and the Theme, and to change configurations on the site. This is also a reason the backup is really important. If you agree to this, please use the form fields I have enabled below to provide temporary access details (wp-admin and FTP).

I have set the next reply to private which means only you and I have access to it.

Go to Toolset => Relationships and check which is your parent/child relationship edit it - copy the slug and replace it within the code.

I do not know what plugin version you are using now.

Are you using latest Toolset plugins?

Could you please send me debug information that will help us to investigate your issue.

Minesh,

You're right, I'm not using the latest version because this is on this site that I have made some modification on the Cred plugin in order to integrate the image rotation function.

Is there another way to define the relationship I need to place in the function?

Pat

Add following shortcode to your current theme's functions.php file:

function func_child_post_exists( $atts ){
    global $post;

    $args = array(
                'post_type'             =>       'wishliste',    // change your child post slug IF needed
                'post_status'           =>       'publish',
                'posts_per_page'    =>       -1,
                'meta_query'            =>       array(
                            array(
                                    'key'           =>       '_wpcf_belongs_objet_id',
                                    'value'     =>       $post->ID,
                            )
                )
        );
        $chids = get_posts( $args );
        return count($chids);
 }
add_shortcode( 'child-post-exists', 'func_child_post_exists' );

Now, call the function as given under:

[wpv-conditional if="( '[child-post-exists]' eq '0' )"]
 no child post available
[/wpv-conditional]
 
 
[wpv-conditional if="( '[child-post-exists]' ne '0' )"]
 Yes - yes child post available
[/wpv-conditional]

Where:
- Register shortcode name child-post-exists at :
=> Tooset => Settings => Front-end Content => Third-party shortcode arguments

Could you please confirm it works or not. Also, you want to match the current post (which is a parent post you are displaying) author should be equal to loggedin user?

Hi Minesh,

That's perfect.
Yes I want to add another condition : that the author = the loggedin user.

Pat

Hi Minesh,

I think the best would be to modify the function "func_child_post_exists" in order to add the loggedin user condition.
That would allow to add this condition without changing anything to the content template.

Ok - I've changed the code as per your request as given under:

function func_child_post_exists( $atts ){
    global $post;
    global $current_user; 
 
    $args = array(
                'post_type'             =>       'wishliste',    // change your child post slug IF needed
                'post_status'           =>       'publish',
                'posts_per_page'    =>       -1,
                'author'        =>  $current_user->ID, 
                'meta_query'            =>       array(
                            array(
                                    'key'           =>       '_wpcf_belongs_objet_id',
                                    'value'     =>       $post->ID,
                            )
                )
        );
        $chids = get_posts( $args );
        return count($chids);
 }
add_shortcode( 'child-post-exists', 'func_child_post_exists' );

I hope this is resolved now 🙂
