Conditional Visibility - can't get to work on a wrapper


#1

Hello

I am displaying a collection group of items and only want the items displayed that have a logo added because this means the business is running a promotion I want to display. Therefore, conditional visibility = display the list item if a logo has been set. This works for the fields themselves but not the wrapper. I have lots of blank wrappers where there are no logos/therefore content.

When I select the wrapper to edit the styles, the condition visibility option is not available, it only appears if I click a collection field.

Currently it looks like this (see the white empty boxes), I am trying to make the boxes disappear too not just their contents:

I hope I’ve explained this ok and that this is possible and would love to hear any clues on how to achieve this. Many thanks.

and the page is called “Test”

Can only be done using custom code. Perhaps simply unpublish/draft those items that are not ready to be displayed?

Hello @Kulsha

I would suggest two things:

If you don’t want to show items on a list use the option “draft” as it was mentioned or

Show a generic text like “Your promo can be here” and make a condition visibility that if the logo is not set then it will appear:

Just some ideas.

Hi @samliew, thanks so much for responding. Problem in my case if I unpublish those items then they won’t appear on other pages where I use the same collection for different fields (eg I have other spots using same collection items for general banners - not promo’s).

Your suggestion has got me thinking though… Perhaps I need to assign the ones that I want published on my promo page to have a category reference field set to them and then call up the collection to only display those items in that category… It’s not ideal as I would then need to create another separate collection for the 2 categories (promo and standard) and I wanted to keep things less cluttered with collections, but has me thinking about a workaround anyway. I appreciate your help, thanks again.

Hi @aaronocampo, thanks for your suggestions! As mentioned I can’t put them on draft because then those businesses would not appear on other pages where they are used for other display purposes using different fields (I also have a standard listing too) …

Your generic text idea is really interesting and I didn’t think of that. I will think it through a way I can promote my own website/services in those spots somehow ! Thanks for the screenshot and demonstrating this. Much appreciated!

an alternative is to have a toggle field.

@samliew, oh yes thank you I will try that! I didn’t realise the toggle field was one of the methods you could display a collection. Can’t wait to try, that would be the best solution I think.
