    PHP error Link to this post


    Can someone tells me what's wrong with this :

    public   function hasPress()
    if ($this->PressRelease == '') then return false;
    else return true;

    I'm getting an unexpected T_RETURN but I don't know what to correct all the ; seems to be in the right place

    There is no "then" in PHP syntax.

    Also, your function is unnecessarily complicated. Here it is, revised:

    public function hasPress()
    return $this->PressRelease != '';

    In all honesty, you can probably just say,

    return $this->PressRelease.

    If $this->PressRelease is null or empty, that is evaluated as false in PHP.

    That function is useless on a template, btw, because <% if PressRelease %> does the same thing.
