Tell us what you are trying to do?

On all those tourist spots, eg lien caché we have under the image/video a grey part with information. Most of those information are filled out per tourist spot, but some are not used either, depend of the tourist spot.

What I need from You is a short code function, where I "echo" out this:

<ul class="contact">
 	<li><strong><i class="fas fa-taxi"></i> Distance From Bismarcks Paradise:</strong> [types field='distance-from-sakoo' format='FIELD_VALUE'][/types]</li>
 	<li><strong><i class="fas fa-taxi"></i> Distance From Central Phuket:</strong> [types field='distance-from-phuket-town' format='FIELD_VALUE'][/types]</li>

</ul>
</li>
</ul>

The function I like to have a custom function in Toolse Settings, like this:

<?php
/**
 * New custom code snippet (replace this with snippet description).
 */
toolset_snippet_security_check() or die( 'Direct access is not allowed' );
// Put the code of your snippet below this comment.

function func_display_information() {
    /* here used the whole part above */
}
add_shortcode( 'show_tourist_info', 'func_display_information' );

The main thing is, for each

  • , for example:
    <li><strong><i class="fas fa-location-arrow"></i> Address</strong> [types field="address-text" target="_blank"][/types]</li>

    if there is no address-text in, then it should not "echo" out. I know that I use to need

    [wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-address-text) ne '' )"]<li><strong><i class="fas fa-location-arrow"></i> Address</strong> [types field="address-text" target="_blank"][/types]</li>[/wpv-conditional]

    But this is somehow not working in the Theme we are using. This is why I like to create a function doing it. But my php for it is not so strong, and as You did recently some small work, You might be able to help, either if only for 3 lines and showing how to do.

    So, I've adjusted the shortcode as given under:

    function func_display_information($atts) {
      global $post;
      $str = '';
      
      $field_value = get_post_meta($post->ID,'wpcf-'.$atts['field'],true);
       
      if($atts['field']=='address-text' and !empty($field_value)){
          $str .= '<li><strong><i class="fas fa-location-arrow"></i> Address</strong>'.$field_value.'</li>';
        
      }else if($atts['field']=='telephone' and !empty($field_value)){
        $str .= '<li><strong><i class="fas fa-phone"></i> Telephone</strong>'.$field_value.'</li>';
      }
      
      return $str;
       
    }
    add_shortcode( 'show_tourist_info', 'func_display_information' );
    

    Where:
    - You should add as many if else conditiontions as given above for your every field and display each field and call it as given under:

    [show_tourist_info field="address-text"]
    [show_tourist_info field="telephone"]
    

    You should just keep the UL tag and all li tags will be come from the shortcode. I hope its clear 🙂

    Dear Minesh

    Great thank You - I will try later, but looking understandable. Only 2 things:

    1. This line needs somehow ab it special coding:

    <strong>Food </strong>[wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-food) eq 'Excellent' )" output="raw"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/five-star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional][wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-food) eq 'Good' )" output="raw"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/four-star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional][wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-food) eq 'Average' )" output="raw"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/three-star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional][wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-food) eq 'Ok' )"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/two_star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional][wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-food) eq 'Not Good' )"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/one_star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional] <strong>Service </strong>[wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-service) eq 'Excellent' )" output="raw"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/five-star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional][wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-service) eq 'Good' )" output="raw"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/four-star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional][wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-service) eq 'Average' )" output="raw"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/three-star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional][wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-service) eq 'Ok' )"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/two_star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional][wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-service) eq 'Not Good' )"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/one_star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional] <strong>Ambiance </strong>[wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-ambiance) eq 'Excellent' )" output="raw"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/five-star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional][wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-ambiance) eq 'Good' )" output="raw"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/four-star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional][wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-ambiance) eq 'Average' )" output="raw"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/three-star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional][wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-ambiance) eq 'Ok' )"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/two_star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional][wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-bismarck-rating-ambiance) eq 'Not Good' )"]<img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/one_star1.png" alt="Star Rating" />[/wpv-conditional]</li>

    2. If I like to show the post title somewhere in a function like this, where I used to have

    [wpv-post-title]

    - how I do this?

    1. This line needs somehow ab it special coding:
    => What you mean - I see there is already conditional statements added - do you mean that those conditionals also converted to PHP code?

    2. If I like to show the post title somewhere in a function like this, where I used to have
    => As this is PHP code and we do added the global $post; - So you can display the post title using $post->post_title.

    #1345019

    For point 1, yes... I like to have it also coded basically as last

  • or inbetween.

    For point 2, I assume like this will be okay?

    $str .= '<li><strong><i class="fab fa-tripadvisor"></i> <a href="'.$field_value.'" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer">TripAdvisor Reviews from '.$post->post_title.'</a></strong></li>';

    And additional question, for those shortcodes - I will add them then like this

    <ul>
    [show_tourist_info field="facebook-url"]
    </ul>

    this will be then:

    <ul>
    <li>Whatever it needs to show</li>
    </ul>

    correct?

  • #1345239

    Dear Minesh

    Please check the actual status how It would be: lien caché

    This looking great. Now I only need to add those star-ratings... can also get done with a separate new function, if this is better.

    Regards

    #1345243

    My issue is resolved now. Thank you!

    I used now this code:

    else if($atts['field']=='tripadvisor-url' and !empty($field_value)){
        $str .= '<li><strong><i class="fab fa-tripadvisor"></i> <a href="'.$field_value.'" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer">TripAdvisor Reviews from '.$post->post_title.'</a></strong></li>';
      }
      else if($atts['field']=='bismarck-rating-food' and !empty($field_value)){
        /*$str .= '<li><strong><i class="fas fa-pencil-alt"></i> Food:</strong>'.$field_value.'</li>';*/
        if($field_value == "Excellent"){ 
        $str .= '<strong>Food: </strong><img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/five-star1.png" alt="5 Star Rating" />';
        } elseif($field_value == "Good"){
          $str .= '<strong>Food: </strong><img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/four-star1.png" alt="4 Star Rating" />';
        } elseif($field_value == "Average"){
          $str .= '<strong>Food: </strong><img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/three-star1.png" alt="3 Star Rating" />';
        } elseif($field_value == "Ok"){
          $str .= '<strong>Food: </strong><img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/two_star1.png" alt="2 Star Rating" />';
        } elseif($field_value == "Not Good"){
          $str .= '<strong>Food: </strong><img class="bis_star" src="/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/one_star1.png" alt="1 Star Rating" />';
        }
      }

    There might be an easier way - but it is working as expected.

    #1345297

    Dear Minesh

    I found some more things... as in the original code are some variables needs to get set:

    [wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-distance-from-sakoo) ne '' )"]
    <li><strong><i class="fa fa-taxi"></i> Distance (Bismarcks Paradise)</strong>[types field="distance-from-sakoo" format="FIELD_VALUE"][/types] km [wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-time-from-sakoo) ne '' )"]([types field="time-from-sakoo" format="FIELD_VALUE"][/types] minutes)[/wpv-conditional]</li>[/wpv-conditional]
    [wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-distance-from-phuket-town) ne '' )"]<li><strong><i class="fa fa-taxi"></i> Distance (Central Phuket)</strong>[types field="distance-from-phuket-town" format="FIELD_VALUE"][/types] km [wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-time-from-phuket-town) ne '' )"]([types field="time-from-phuket-town" format="FIELD_VALUE"][/types] minutes)[/wpv-conditional]</li>[/wpv-conditional]
    [wpv-conditional if="( $(wpcf-price-from) ne '' ) AND ( $(wpcf-price-to) ne '' )"]<li><strong><i class="fa fa-money"></i> Price Range</strong> [types field="price-from" format="FIELD_VALUE"][/types] - [types field="price-to" format="FIELD_VALUE"][/types] THB</li>[/wpv-conditional]

    There are additional variables, where need to change into php code. I tried doing somehting like this, but not sure if this is working and what variable I need to use:

    if($atts['field']=='distance-from-sakoo' and !empty($field_value)){
          $str .= '<li><strong><i class="fas fa-taxi"></i> Distance From Bismarcks Paradise:</strong>'.$field_value.' km 'if (!empty $(wpcf-time-from-sakoo)) </li>';
      }

    If You can help me again.

    In such case you need to manage the field as given under:

    Please check the following example for distance-from-sakoo and time-from-sakoo fields:

    
    if($atts['field']=='distance-from-sakoo' and !empty($field_value)){
    
        $str .= '<li><strong><i class="fas fa-taxi"></i> Distance From Bismarcks Paradise:</strong>'.$field_value.' km ';
         
         $value_sakoo = get_post_meta($post->ID,'wpcf-time-from-sakoo',true);
          if(!empty($value_sakoo )){
             $str .=  ' (.'$value_sakoo '.) minutes';
            }
          $str .= '</li>';
      }

    Dear Minesh

    It gives me an error:

    syntax error, unexpected '$value_sakoo' (T_VARIABLE) in /mnt/disk1/home/luxuryvillasphuk/public_html/new/wp-content/toolset-customizations/show-tourist-information.php on line 19

    What could this be?

    Upps. I added dots to join the string at wrong place. Could you please check now. It should work. You should use the following code:

    if($atts['field']=='distance-from-sakoo' and !empty($field_value)){
     
        $str .= '<li><strong><i class="fas fa-taxi"></i> Distance From Bismarcks Paradise:</strong>'.$field_value.' km ';
          
         $value_sakoo = get_post_meta($post->ID,'wpcf-time-from-sakoo',true);
          if(!empty($value_sakoo )){
             $str .=  ' ('.$value_sakoo.') minutes';
            }
          $str .= '</li>';
      }
    
    #1346027

    Dear Minesh

    This worked now. I assume, I can do the same or similar way for the second "distance/minutes" and the simialr way for the price from / to.

    Please check this out: lien caché

    On the last point, just after the Tripadvisor - when there is no food rating, it will show me the "|", even if I have no food rating.

    I used the short codes like this:

    [show_tourist_info field="bismarck-rating-food"]  |  [show_tourist_info field="bismarck-rating-service"]  |  [show_tourist_info field="bismarck-rating-ambiance"]

    Any hint or idea how I can do better? Maybe add a new short code, where it check if it needs those "|" - only when there is something filled in those 3 fields...

    Simon

    => Yes, thats correct.

    You should add those "|" with $str value from your shortcode where required.
    For example;

       $str .= " | ";
    

    And remove the "|" from where you are calling the shortcode.
