Hi everyone,
my problem:
i wan't t do something in the template when a certain page in navigation is selected. My idea was the following code:

<% if $Top.Title = TopTitleValue %>
<p>Show me something</p>
<% end_if %>

Unfortunately im getting a parse error only: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '}' in C:\Windows\Temp\silverstripe-cacheC--Program-Files-(x86)-Zend-Apache2-htdocs-ss\.cache.themes.notdienst.templates.Inhalt.ss on line 304

Is there a way to my goal?
I'm using Silverstripe 2.4.
TIA
Tom

You can do that in 3.* but 2.4 had a much more basic template engine. In 2.4 you will need to make a PHP function to do the comparison.
