We're using an unchanged, unmodified version of PHPlib's template
library. The file has simply been renamed.

And no, the original does not support "if" or other logic control, see
<http://www.sanisoft.com/phplib/manual/template.php> for the original

I've found that in most cases, I can handle if-cases in the PHP logic and
use one of the following solutions in the template files:

1) For links: {start_my_link}{link_text}{end_my_link} where
{start_my_link} is either empty or contains the actual link, e.g. <a
href="http://..."> (and likewise for the {end_my_link}

2) Nested templates, especially for lists.

Maybe that gives you some ideas ...

bye, Dirk
