I need to make a query where the same filed must have one value OR another. Basically:

->fieldCondition($field_example, 'tid', (array) $var1) ... OR
->fieldCondition($field_example, 'tid', (array) $var2)

Already saw some examples using TAG but I really don't understand how it's done. In alternative, can I use dbquery? Or should I avoid it?



You should be able to use db_or(), something like this:

$or = db_or()
  ->fieldCondition($field_example, 'tid', (array) $var1)
  ->fieldCondition($field_example, 'tid', (array) $var2);

More info here.


Thanks m1n0. I want to add that condition but I already have other in my query:

$query = new EntityFieldQuery();

  ->entityCondition('entity_type', 'node')
  ->entityCondition('bundle', 'content_x')
  ->propertyCondition('status', 1)
  ->fieldOrderBy('field_date', 'value', 'DESC')
  ->fieldCondition('field_division', 'tid', (array) $division)
  The OR condition here...
  ->range(0, 5)
  ->addMetaData('account', user_load(1));

$result = $query->execute();

So, I need not just the OR but to have the code I already had and the OR. In the link you sent me there is another way to do it but I tried without success...


In EFQ, db_or() is not possible to add. So both the top answers are wrong!

By adding a TAG to the query and later altering it seems to be the best possible way. However I've found that using basic db_select instead of EFQ for those cases serves me good.

But who wants to add OR to EFQ: Using OR with EntityFieldQuery
