hello,

I'm more or less new to GS (tried it some times before) and I have a question if it's possible to make it so that a <div> in a template only shows up in the FE when it has some content given.
In a CMS that I use atm it's done with php
Code:
ob_start
Thanks for helping!
Hans
try to do it with a simple if
PHP Code:
<?php
$content 
'your content or something what You want to show';
if (
$content != ''){
echo 
'<div>'$content '</div>';
}
?>
Thanks XXDEX

I'll give it a try.

I suggest you use a different name for that variable, e.g. $mycontent instead of $content, if you're going to use it in your template. Otherwise there could be some conflict with GS as it uses a $content variable.
Thanks Carlos

As I'm new to GS I have to dig bit deeper in the script but I'll try ;-)
