Can you post your template file - If you are in the control then the scope of the template changes so functions from the Controller won't be called. Thats possibility you're issue.

DirectoryPage.ss
<% control Listings %>
...
<% if Offerings %>
   <li>Avaliable <% end_if %>

DirectoryPage.php

   function Listings() {
    return DataObject::get('Member', "IncludeInDirectory = TRUE AND DirState = '" . $this->title . "'");
    }
   function getOfferings() {
    die('');
return True;

Ah ok that clears things up. Doing <% control Listings %> changes the scope in the template to the 'Member' object rather then the DirectoryPage. To get Offerings to work you need to add that function to your Member decorator (looks like you have decorated it already) so by putting that function in the decorator it should be called.

Hi Will
Thats got it to apply, thanks. But the actually decision making is still not actually working.

function Offerings() {
   return ($this->Referrals) ? true : false;
   
}
Returns false all the time independant of the value of Referrals

function Offerings() {
   return (Referrals) ? true : false;
}

Returns True all the time independant of the value of Referrals

function Offerings() {
   return ($this->Referrals=="True") ? true : false;
}
Returns false all the time independant of the value of Referrals

Created Referrals as an Enum rather than a Boolean to enable me to align with users administration database.
'Referrals' => "Enum('TRUE,FALSE','FALSE')",

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Thanks

Since this is in your decorator you have to refer to fields as $this->owner->Referrals.
