On my site, there are products that have:
1. No options
2. Options with color variations
3. Price options
4. Options of both color and price
If a product has no color or price options, it should go directly to the cart. However, if the product has options of either price or color or both, then I am trying to direct a visitor to pages where they can select more options, but the logic in my code only works when there are ONLY Product Options ($ProductOptions). When there are Price options or variations ($ProductPr), the logic breaks down. Any ideas on how to make it work? Here is the code:

<% if $ProductOptions || $ProductPr %>
<a href="$Link"><input type="button" class="cart-button" value="Click for Pricing" /></a>
<% else_if $ProductOptions && $ProductPr %>
<a href="$Link"><input type="button" class="cart-button" value="Click for Pricing" /></a>
<% else %>
<strong>$Price.Nice</strong> <input type="submit" class="cart-button" value="Add to Cart" />
<% end_if %>

Transfer the logic to the controller or the model (probably the model). If it's not your code, try using an Extension (probably DataExtension).
It's the easiest sure-fire way to deal with such issues, and is arguably where such logic belongs.

Thanks, Pyro. I'll find a way to do that. No doubt, It'll be a big a leap in my understanding of Silverstripe!

It's basically just what you've got written there, but in PHP and in a function on the model.
Or applied to the model via: https://docs.silverstripe.org/en/3.1/developer_guides/extending/extensions/
Then you just call $ThatFunction from the template instead.

If it's all new to you, the important thnig is not to be afraid.
Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, and hatred leads to suffering
To the dark side that path leads.

Pryro,

You've been a HUGE help. Thank you so much on this (and great Yoda quote, by the way). I've been intimidated some aspects of Silverstripe, but this is forcing me to "Boldly go where" I haven't gone before - which is a good thing!

I'll get it done:)
