Feature: #99194 - Support for various string comparisons for stdWrap.if TypoScript function

See forge#99194


The TypoScript function if. now supports several new sub-properties for comparing a value (provided via if.value = ...), if it contains a certain part of a string, or starts with a certain part, or ends with a certain part. All of these properties also work with the if.negate flag.

The new TypoScript properties for if. are called:

  • if.contains
  • if.startsWith
  • if.endsWith

All of the mentioned properties can be assigned a static value, and support stdWrap as their sub-properties.


As if. is available in most content objects, stdWrap or data processors, it can now be used more exhaustive.

Example for ìf.contains:

# Add a span tag before the page title if the page title
# contains the string "media"
page.10 = TEXT
page.10.data = page:title
page.10.htmlSpecialChars = 1
page.10.prepend = TEXT
page.10.prepend.value = <span class="icon-video"></span>
page.10.prepend.if.value.data = page:title
page.10.prepend.if.contains = Media
page.10.outerWrap = <h1>|</h1>

Example for ìf.endsWith:

# Add a footer note, if the page author ends with "Kott"
page.100 = TEXT
page.100.value = This is an article from Benji
page.100.htmlSpecialChars = 1
page.100.if.value.data = page:author
page.100.if.endsWith = Kott
page.100.wrap = <footer>|</footer>

Example for ìf.startsWith:

page.10 = TEXT
page.10.value = Your editor added the magic word in the header field
page.10.htmlSpecialChars = 1
page.10.if.value.data = DB:tt_content:1234:header
page.10.if.startsWith = Bazinga
