Get Post Meta / echo Help needed WordPress

  • SOLVED

Currently I am displaying the following on my site which works well.

<?php if ( get_post_meta($post->ID, 'phone', true) ) : ?>
<strong>phone:</strong> <?php echo $phone; ?><?php endif; ?></div>


However I am now getting 2 variables 'phone' & 'mobile'.

So I want to only display one at a time with phone as the primary variable.

So what i need is the snippet of code to display.

<?php if ( get_post_meta($post->ID, 'phone', true) ) : ?>
<strong>phone:</strong> <?php echo $phone; ?><?php endif; ?>

<?php if ( get_post_meta($post->ID, 'phone', false) ) : ?>
<strong>mobile:</strong> <?php echo $mobile; ?><?php endif; ?>

But it displays both.

So I want to echo the 'phone' as primary, and if no 'phone', it echos the 'mobile'.

Hi,

Please use this


<?php

$phone = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'phone', true);
$mobile = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'mobile', true);

if(!empty($phone)){
echo "phone: $phone";
}else{
echo "mobile: $mobile";
}

?>


Thanks.

<?php
$phone = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'phone', true);
$mobile = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'mobile', true);

if($phone) {echo "phone : $phone";}
elseif($mobile){echo "mobile: $mobile";}

?>


this code is complete :
if there is a phone, this number is displayed
else the "mobile" is displayed (only if "mobile" exist)


when you want use a condition like : if...else, the syntax must be like that


if (condition) { the action i want to do is here; }

elseif (another_condition) { the action i want to do if the second condition is true, and the first is false; }
