Hi,

I have a field in my DD that is required, If I uncheck that it is required, it messes up the formatting by wrapping an <h2> around everything. Instead of just not showing the h2. Could you please look at the code.

Attached is the code.

    Hi Ellen,

    You should be able to surround the <h2> with a conditional that checks to see if the heading has a value or not. Something like the following should do the trick:

    ...
        #set ( $heading = $directory.getChild("heading"))
        #if ($heading.value != '')
            <h2>$_EscapeTool.xml($heading.value)</h2>
        #end
    ...
    

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!

    Yes, that did the trick. My attempt looked like this.

    #set ( $heading = $directory.getChild("heading") )
        #if ($heading.value != "")
        $_SerializerTool.serialize($heading, true))

    #end
    <h2>$_EscapeTool.xml($heading.value)</h2>
