Problem with multiple if exists

I’m having a problem using multiple conditions with exists. If I only use a single clause it works as expected but when using OR the condition is never met and the content does not display.

The first thing that stands out is that your IDs contain dashes.

If I change them now, will that break all existing pages using that template?

Yes, absolutely.

It looks like there are only 5 pages using the template at the moment so it shouldn’t be a huge problem to fix them all.

Thanks Drew, I’ve swapped the IDs and everything is working now.
