Possible to get true/false tags from a global?
I'm trying to call a global, so it returns true if an entry exists with certain details, but it doesn't seem to be working very well Unsure

The global is:

Code:
sub {

# this is where we decide if a category is new or not...

my $ID = shift;

my $table = $DB->table('Category');
my $exists = $table->count( { Has_New_Links => "Yes", ID => $ID } );

if ($exists) { return 1; }
}

The tag I am using is;

<%if _has_new_links(8) == 1%>new<%endif%>

also tried;

<%if _has_new_links(8) eq "1"%>new<%endif%>
<%if _has_new_links(8)%>new<%endif%>

If I print out the tag, i.e;

<%_has_new_links(8)%>

...i tshows up as I would expect; 1 for links that the value is true on, and 0 for calls where it is not true.

I'm assuming this feature is supported in LSQL?

Cheers
