Show message if no subpages are available

Hi folks,

I have a Template where I loop through a set of visible subpages, kind of like a blogpost-overview. If there is no subpage available/visible, I’d like to show a message on the website, like “no posts available”. Do you a code-solution for me?

Thanks in advance, cheers,

You can use the count() method ( to check if there are pages in your collection:

Quick and dirty example:

    <?php if($page->children()->visible()->count() > 0): ?>
        // There are pages, continue with logic
    <?php else: ?>
        <span>No messages!</span>
    <?php endif ?>

Well thank you very much, Gerard! Perfect answer, worked exactly as intended. Thanks!
