Conditional output in templates based on date?
I'm trying to customise search results at the template stage. What I'd like to achieve is for the result to only appear if a date field in the result is less than or equal to the current date.
I'm passing in the current date from search.php like this:
And I'm using Perch:if statements to try and control the display of the results like this (where item_post_date is a date formatted in Y-m-d):
<perch:if id="item_post_date" match="lte" value="current-date"> ... item output code here <perch:else> <p>Item not yet published </perch:if>
The problem is, the item is always displayed. Is it actually possible to compare these two variables in the template this way, or do I need to use an alternative date format?
