Re: [EP-tech] [3.3.15] How to define the path in a pin?

Hi John,

thanks, but I'm afraid that the phrase viewintro_view will not work, unless I'll be able to display it only in the list page. I am using a leaflet map, so I need a
<div id="mymap" /> in my view_item_page

using a specific mymap template is nice because I can load the leaflet js only for that page, but I'm obliged to have the mymap call also in the menu page.

and for the phrase it is unclear for me if I can display the phrase only on the item list page.

Does this help:


A phrase “viewintro_view_1” might work?


It gets inserted at the top of the page – which might not be what you want?

You can also include a ‘template’ argument for a view, if that helps?

Subject: [EP-tech] [3.3.15] How to define the path in a pin?


Hi Eprinters,

I am configuring a view and I want to display something only in a certain condition. The logic solution would be to use a pin I think. I can think of three methods:

1) a test in the template

<epc:if test="current_path eq '/views/1'" >

   <div class="view_1" />


2) a test in a dynamic_template

    <epc:pin ref="view1" />

    and then in the dynamic_template.pl
    $c->{dynamic_template}->{function} = sub {
        my( $repository, $parts ) = @_;
        if ( current_path() eq "/views/1" ) {
            my $xml = $repository->xml();
            my $div = $xml->create_element( "div", class => "view_1");
            $parts->{view1} = $div;

3) a test in phrase? does this really works?

obviously I have been unable to make any of these works, do you have any experience?
