in The WebLeftBar Topic I am trying to control what content is displayed depending on who is logged in.

In this case display the "Statistics" topic if you are not "TWikiGuest".

%IF{ "$ WIKINAME!='TWikiGuest' " then="   * [[WebStatistics][ %ICON{"statistics"}% %MAKETEXT{"Statistics"}%]]" else "No web stats" }%
Can anyone tell me why this does not work? Or have a recommendation on how to accomplish this. Any help much appreciated.

Try %IF{ "'$ WIKINAME'!='TWikiGuest' "

Thanks for the suggestion...Did not help.

This one works:

%IF{ "$WIKINAME!='TWikiGuest' " then="   * [[WebStatistics][%MAKETEXT{"Statistics"}%]]" else="No web stats" }%

Yes. Thanks, I wonder why the ICON function breaks it.

%IF{ "$WIKINAME!='TWikiGuest' " then="   * [[WebStatistics][  %ICON{"statistics"}% %MAKETEXT{"Statistics"}%]]" else="" }%

Because of the quotes.

Anyway to escape this or get around it?

Finally got it to work!

%IF{ "$WIKINAME!='TWikiGuest' " then="   * [[WebStatistics][ %ICONURL{"statistics"}% %MAKETEXT{"Statistics"}%]]" else="" }%

Arthur thanks for all the help!
