Is this php?

I purchased a set of php scripts.  Many of are encrypted via ioncube, but there are some editable templates.

Located on one of the templates is this:

  <%if(login)%>
 <%include(menu.template)%>
<%/if%>

Is this some form of php?  If not, what is it?

My intention is to make an 'else' after this: if person is logged in, they get menu.template (which works right now), but if they are not logged in, they get 'menu_not_logged_in.template'.  I haven't been able to figure out how do to that.....    <%if(!login)%> and some different variations on that, but that didn't work.  Anyone know what this is and how I make it do what I want?

Thanks,     Chris

Actually you can use ASP style tags <%%> for PHP but you have to set it first in the PHP ini file, so it is possible (if a bad idea) to use % tags. This said, the <% /if%> is not a PHP syntax.

It is not also ASP nor JSP
It is possible that this is custom syntax for this application only.

Looks like custom tags, so I would say its another pre-processor, looks a lot like cold fusion?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Is custom syntax for this application only, just a way of setting things in the template, take a look at the website docs, it will help. :)

Can you provide a bit more code...

I would think it was php but developed on a server that allowed use of asp tags. (bad coder)

AFAIK php is the only common web language to have a function include( ) unless of course this is a custom written one.

It's deffo not VB as the if statement would not have brackets and would have a "then" ( if x then ), it would also need an "End If".

If include is a custom fuction then it could be java (jsp) or C# (asp.net)


Like i said, print more code! at least 10 lines or more.

Sorry just to add...

It seems the if conditional does not have { }, I'm not sure if php allows for if statements without curly braces but java does and most likey so does C#..

once again, like everyone else; its not php.

<? php ?>
<% asp %>

these are the sort tags for them. you could do it really long and go for

<script language="php">
</script>

<script language="asp">
</script>

they are just different way of indicating the script start/end.

they are part of asp's default "specifiacation", but are not genreally recopmmeded for use, as they can confuse parsers. The same goes for the really short php tags, <? ?>.

Wow, thank you all for your comments.

I turned off asp on the server and it still runs, so I don't think it's asp.  I read an asp tutorial and did some testing and that didn't apply.

I am going to award this to the first person that mentioned it may be custom code, I am not positive that's right, but I think it is,

Thanks again,

Chris

These are constructs of the templating system. Which template system is being used? Refer to reference of that.
