PHP Code assistance needed with code logic

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi all,

I need assistance modifying the following code.

<?php $li_count = 0; 
	echo '<ul>';
	echo '<li><a href="#">One</a></li>';
	echo '<li><a href="#">Two</a></li>';
	echo '<li><a href="#">Three</a></li>';
	//Dynamic pages.
	if ($var1 == '1') {
		echo '<li><a href="#">Dynamic1</a></li>';
	//Area 2
	if ($li_count > 4) {
		echo '<ul>';
		echo '<li><a href="#">Sub One</a></li>';
		echo '<li><a href="#">Sub Two</a></li>';
		echo '<li><a href="#">Sub Three</a></li>';
		echo '</ul>';
	echo '</ul>';

Open in new window


What I need it to do is the following:

If at any time $li_count is bigger than 4 then I just it to do Area 2. In other words the first 4 list items will show up as normal..all other items if more than 4 will do Area 2.

So, I need to code to check the total at all times and if more than 4 then you get the sub list for all lists after 4th.

Hope it makes sense, if not please let me know.
