I have a parent post type event-type that contains a status field
[types field="event-type-boat-requests-allowed-status" output="raw" id="$event-type"][/types]

I know that displaying this field produces the correct value.

I want to test for a status value = 1 but cannot seem to get the syntax right.

My attempt is:

[wpv-if status="wpcf-event-type-boat-requests-allowed-status" id="$event-type" evaluate="$status=1"] ...... [/wpv-if]

I use this type of condition test quite often (without the parent link)
[wpv-if status="wpcf-event-status" evaluate="$status=1"]
and it works fine.

Adding the parent linkage seems to be messing something up somewhere.

Any suggestions much appreciated as I have tried searching for the answer and experimented with lots of syntax combinations. It appears that my syntax thinks the status in the data record is 0 instead of 1.

Many thanks

Hi Tony,

Please try this:

[wpv-if evaluate="'[types field="event-type-boat-requests-allowed-status" output="raw" id="$event-type"][/types]'=1"]
display something

Hi Luoy

Excellent - works fine.

I tried the link suggested before but could not find a parent example that fitted what I wanted to do. I now have a template for future use (added to my library!).
