Perch conditional not working on content template

Hi, I'm using

<perch:if id="lang" value="es">xyz</perch:if>

to filter content by language on my content templates, but they do not work (on blog templates they do). Anyone knows why?

I use php code to set variable:


    if (isset($_GET['lang']) && $_GET['lang']!='') {
      $lang = $_GET['lang'];
      $_SESSION['lang'] = $lang;
    }elseif (isset($_SESSION['lang'])){
      $lang = $_SESSION['lang'];
      // default language
      $lang = 'es';

 PerchSystem::set_var('lang', $lang);

How are you displaying your region? I can't see that in the code you've shown.

<?php perch_content('Home'); ?>

The perch_content() function uses the cached HTML that is generated when your region is edited. Therefore it doesn't know anything about any variables that you set at runtime. Instead, you can do this:
