    Need to alter a small piece of code to check for Categories in Joomla

    Hello I have a piece of code in my frontpage/default_item.php file which enables the category called 'Movies' to be given extra divs for CSS rounded corners.

    The code works fine and is as follows -
    PHP Code:
    <?php if($this->item->category == "Movies") { ?>
        <div><div><div>
    <?php ?>
    I would now like to add a second category to use rounded corners as well. The category will be called "Football".

    What do I need to add so the code to checks for more than one category e.g. both "Movies" & "Football"? I tried changing the code to the code below, but I get an error message

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ',' in....

    PHP Code:
    <?php if($this->item->category == "Movies""Football") { ?>
        <div><div><div>
    <?php ?>
    Many thanks

    Tom

    This is an "OR" condition ... one or the other.

    PHP Code:
    <?php if($this->item->category == "Movies" || $this->item->category == "Football") { ?> 
        <div><div><div> 
    <?php ?>
    It couldn't be "AND" because it could never be both at the same time.

    Describe the logic on how it "should work".
