How to Use Conditional Tags in WordPress (Extended)

Snippets by IsItWP

Are you looking for a way to use extended conditional tags in WordPress? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to use conditional tags in WordPress.

Instructions:

All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

<?php
if( !is_admin() ) {
  # If the user is not Admin'  #
}
?>

Since the whole thing really is basic PHP, you can extend the use of it by adding just a few characters.

if( !is_admin() ) {
  # If the user is not Admin'  #
}

The !-char before the if-statement(is_admin), says ‘if not’ instead of ‘if’.

if( is_home() && is_page('1') ) {
  # If the user is at the home page and the home page is a page with the ID 1 #
}

If you add && between two(or more) statements both need to be true for the code to execute. You could also just type AND.

if( is_home() || is_page('1') ) {
  # If the user is at the home page or a page with the ID 1 #
}

The ||-chars says that one of the statements need to be true for the code to be executed. The word OR works to.

if( is_home() || is_page('1') ) {
  # If the user is at the home page or a page with the ID 1 #
}
