I have this in my main, but I want to switch background depending on the layout using an if statement. Is this correct syntax? If not, what am I missing/doing wrong?

<% if $Layout = HomePage %>
<link href="themes/ofarm/css/homepage.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<% else %>
<link href="themes/ofarm/css/page.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<% end if %>

Couple notes - you don't need to use a $ when your inside the <% %> tags and $Layout can't be used for that sadly. You have to use ClassName or you can use URLSegment

<% if URLSegment = home %> or <% if ClassName = HomePage %> if you have made a custom HomePage class which you can use.
