witchypaws created the topic: Delete a comma if only one field is filled out

Hi

I have two fields in content builder

One is called ppcontactname and the other is ppjobtitle

On the content template, I have added the following

{hide-if-empty ppcontactname} {ppcontactname:value}{/hide}{hide-if-empty ppjobtitle}, {ppjobtitle:value}{/hide}

with a comma and space between the two fields - this works fine if they fill out both fields and it works fine if the jobtitle field is empty

However, if they fill out the jobtitle field and not the contact name field, i get the example in the screenshot where the comma and space is showing in front of the field

I have tried various combinations but if you turn the comma off for one field, it shows on the other, etc.

Is there a way to write a script that shows something not hides something or is there a way to do what I want please

Thanks

Jacqui

Hello,

In the Content Template code with conditional statements can't be written, but there is a possibility to write code in the Content Prepare.

Therefore, here is how you can manage this situation.

In Content Prepare put the following code:
if( $items["ppcontactname"]["value"]  != "" && $items["ppjobtitle"]["value"]  != "" ) {
    $items["ppjobtitle"]["value"] = ", " . $items["ppjobtitle"]["value"];
}
Then in the Content Template leave out the ",", so just leave this code:
{hide-if-empty ppcontactname} {ppcontactname:value}{/hide}{hide-if-empty ppjobtitle}{ppjobtitle:value}{/hide}

Let me know whether this is working as you wanted.

Regards,

Mihaela
