I'm trying to hide HTML on all 'Group' taxonomy archive pages, I'm not sure what conditional statement to use.

I don't see any option to say "If is taxonomy archive Group" - maybe I could use the URL but would I need Regex?

This is what I've tried:

[wpv-conditional if="( '[wpv-taxonomy-url]' eq 'group' )" evaluate="false"]<br>
  [wpv-post-date][/wpv-conditional]

Hello,

Yes, you are right, it needs custom codes, I suggest you try these:
1) Create a custom shortcode to check current page is archive page of taxonomy "group", for example add below codes into your theme file functions.php:

add_shortcode("is_tax_sc", function($atts){
	$atts = shortcode_atts( array(
		'tax' => '',
	), $atts);
	$res = 0;
	if(is_tax($atts['tax'])){
		$res = 1;
	}
	return $res;
});

This will create a custom shortcode [is_tax_sc] to check if current page is archive page of specific taxonomy

2) Dashboard-> Toolset-> Settings-> Front-end Content
in section "Third-party shortcode arguments", add the shortcode name: is_tax_sc

3) Use above shortcode like this:

[wpv-conditional if=" ( '[is_tax_sc tax="group"]' eq '1' ) "  evaluate="false"]
[wpv-post-date]
[/wpv-conditional]

That works perfectly, thanks so much! :). I like how you've coded it to accept the taxonomy directly within the shortcode so it can be used elsewhere too without more changes to functions.php.

It would be great to have functionality like this built in. However, your solution is perfect, thanks again 🙂
