Custom fields tokens in HTML templates

Custom fields are displayed in articles with tokens in the HTML templates. There is a shared token [EDNcf:ShowAll] that displays a whole custom field group on the position of the token. Besides a joint token that displays a whole custom field group, it is possible to use individual tokens for each field.

You can find individual tokens for each custom field in EasyDNNnews > Dashboard > Edit Custom Fields. Next to each custom field, its token is listed.

An example:

[EDNcf:price] – displays the value of the custom field price
[EDNcf:price:showlabel:default] – displays the label and value of the custom field price
[EDNcf:price:showlabel:onlylabel] – displays only the label of the custom field price

Conditional tokens:

[EDNcf:IfExists:TokenName] [EDNcf:EndIf:TokenName] 
- if the custom field value exists then the content between these two tokens is displayed

[EDNcf:IfNotExists:TokenName] [EDNcf:EndIf:TokenName]
- if the custom field value does not exist then the content between these two tokes is displayed
