I have tour operators that either have a twitter handle, a facebook ID or both. Here is my code:
[wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-twitter-handle) eq '' )" evaluate="false"]<img class="alignleft" src="hidden link field='twitter-handle' output='raw'][/types]/profile_image?size=bigger" />[/wpv-conditional]
[wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-facebook-id) ne '' ) OR ( $(wpcf-twitter-handle) ne '0' )" ]<img class="alignleft" src="hidden link field='facebook-id' output='raw'][/types]/picture?type=normal" />[/wpv-conditional]

This link, hidden link, only has a twitter handle, this one only has a fb ID, hidden link this one has both, hidden link. I need to show either one if it's available but hide the blank image placeholder if not as well as if a company has both then use the fb ID.
I can't seem to get the logic right.
Thanks for your help!

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

Well - I think you are using wrong code:

Code to check if twitter handle is not empty - show it:

[wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-twitter-handle) ne '' )"]
<img class="alignleft" src="<em><u>hidden link</u></em> field='twitter-handle' output='raw'][/types]/profile_image?size=bigger" />
[/wpv-conditional]

Code to check if facebook ID is not empty - show it.

[wpv-conditional if="(  $(wpcf-facebook-id) ne '' )"]
<img class="alignleft" src="<em><u>hidden link</u></em> field='facebook-id' output='raw'][/types]/picture?type=normal" />
[/wpv-conditional]

Could you please try above code and try to resolve your issue.

Yes, the code I had worked, but now if a company has both twitter and facebook, it shows both:
hidden link
I only need it to show one. How can I do that?
Thanks!

Well - if company have both twitter and facebook - which Id you want to show?

Actually - what is your requirement?
- if both twitter and facebook available - show only one ID - which?
- if only twitter available - do we need to show it?
- If only facebook available - do we need to show it?

If both, then show Facebook.
If only Twitter, show Twitter. If only Facebook, show Facebook.

If only Twitter, show Twitter.
