Adding additional conditions to existing if/else statements

Adding additional conditions to existing if/else statements

Hi All

Below is some code that I am using in a catalog page where customers can click on products and either pay with paypal or Call to Order. This is handled by and if/esle statement which is currently working fine. However I need to add conditional statements so that if a certain condition isn't meet then the "Options" dropdown menu wont appear when paying with paypal.

I hope this is clear and someone can help point me in the right direction. Not quite sure where in the code I would need to add and for that matter what I would need to add.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

<div class="WADAResultCommerceButton">
<?php if($row_WADAtb_accessories['call_to'] == "") { ?>
<div class="WADAResultCommerceButton">
<form target="paypal" action="" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_cart" />
<input type="hidden" name="add" value="1" />
<input type="hidden" name="bn" value="webassist.dreamweaver.4_5_0" />
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="<?php echo $row_WADAtb_accessories['prod_name']; ?>" />
<input type="hidden" name="item_number" value="<?php echo $row_WADAtb_accessories['prod_ID']; ?>" />
<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="<?php echo $row_WADAtb_accessories['price_r']; ?>" />
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="AUD" />
<input type="hidden" name="receiver_email" value="" />

<option value=" 3"> 3</option>
<input type="text" name="quantity" value="1" style="width:40px" />
<br />

put another if else statement around the drop down menu. you can nest if else statements inside each other

so for example

if(condition == "value") {

    pay pal form here
    if(othercondition == "something else") {
        options select list
    } else {
        hidden element to replace the select list
    rest of paypal form
} else { 
    call to order
