I have a content type called 'DVD Review' with a field called 'Release Date' which is input using the date module.

On the node page, if the release date is in the future I'd like it to say "Coming Soon", or otherwise, if the release date is in the past say "Out Now".

I'm using Display Suite to arrange the fields, so I'm thinking I could add a code field with a php if statement to handle this.

  • Thanks for the reply. I've managed to solve this using context module. I added a condition of date, which I can then select less that or greater than.
