00531: Add conditional expressions to core

Summary: Add conditional expressions to core

Version: 2.0.6

Description: The Cookbook.ConditionalExtensions recipe is sufficiently well along that it could be considered for inclusion in the core. This recipe allows complex expressions in (:if:) markup with boolean joins and the like.

Cast your votes in "Priority" above for including this feature in the core.


I'm surprised there is not more discussion about this feature. I kept finding that I needed this feature and I was so happy to find it here. I often need menus to appear in only certain circumstances, but those circumstances are more complex than just one condition would give me. I also use UserAuth and this feature lets me have things appear or disappear for more than one user. As for the wiki philosophy, as long as you have simple conditionals, why not allow complex conditionals? I give this a strong vote. -- Andy

I don't find the reason for discuss it. It is a 'must be' feature!!!! Dixon.
