Conditional blocks

The HTML generator supports (limited) conditional blocks inside snippets. These blocks are marked with $$IFxxxx$$ and $$ENDIFxxxx$$ tags.

IFPREVINDEX/ENDIFPREVINDEX

Use these tags to mark a block that should only be written when there is a previous index page. The enclosed block will not be written on page 1. These tags can only be used inside the Header and Footer snippets. Sample:
   $$IFPREVINDEX$$
   <a href="$URLPREVINDEX$">Previous page</a>
   $$ENDIFPREVINDEX$$

IFNEXTINDEX/ENDIFNEXTINDEX

Use these tags to mark a block that should only be written when there is a next index page. The enclosed block will not be written on the last page. These tags can only be used inside the Header and Footer snippets. Sample:
   $$IFNEXTINDEX$$
   <a href="$URLNEXTINDEX$">Next page</a>
   $$ENDIFNEXTINDEX$$

IFPREVPIC/ENDIFPREVPIC

Use these tags to mark a block that should only be written when there is a previous full size picture. The enclosed block will not be written for the first picture. These tags can only be used inside the FullSize snippets. Sample:
   $$IFPREVPIC$$
   <a href="$URLPREVPIC$">Previous picture</a>
   $$ENDIFPREVPIC$$

IFNEXTPIC/ENDIFNEXTPIC

Use these tags to mark a block that should only be written when there is a next full size picture. The enclosed block will not be written for the last picture. These tags can only be used inside the FullSize snippets. Sample:
   $$IFNEXTPIC$$
   <a href="$URLNEXTPIC$">Next picture</a>
   $$ENDIFNEXTPIC$$
