    According to the Revo docs in the Wiki

    What are Filters?

    Filters in Revolution allow you to manipulate the way data is presented or parsed in a tag.

    Input Filters: Currently input filters process tag calls. More documentation to come.

    Output Filters: In Revolution, Output Filters behave similarly to Phx calls in MODx 096 - except they’re built into the core.

    Are filters the answer to simple logic that is currently possible with Phx - e.g. "if TV is empty do this; if it is not empty do that" - ? OR, like has been proposed in other posts, to use snippets (conform to MVC) for such logic instead ? Many thanks.

    cheers/k

      Yes.

      Yes.

      Both are true. Filters employ pHX-style parsing, but for conditional logic, we would prefer people use Snippets. However, flexibility over rigidity is a goal of MODx, so we kept the conditionals in there. You can do it however you want.

      It’s up to you.

      • Thx for the answers.

        I appreciate that the documentation is still in progress. Besides the string modifiers, are there conditional operators to come? (in the documentation i.e.); I couldn’t find any. Thx.
