Adding variables together on-page

11 months ago

So, my current project has me showing a lot of variables on the page by typing something like %%VARIABLE%% into the editor.  Now, I'd like to be able to add and subtract my variables on the page as well.  I tried doing something like %%VARIABLE1 + VARIABLE2%% or, %%VARIABLE1 * 2%%, but that didn't quite work.  I'd rather not spend a bunch of time trying to guess at how to do this when there's a fair chance it isn't even possible in the first place, so I figured I'd just ask about it here.  I reviewed the articles, but I couldn't find anything on the subject.

%VARIABLE3 := %VARIABLE1 + %VARIABLE2

%%VARIABLE3%%

So I do have to make another variable... I was hoping to avoid that, but I guess I'm left with no choice.

Just to clarify. You do not have to create variables to use them in scripts.

You only have to create variables that you want to use with link restrictions.

Wait, so I can just declare them in the script itself, or on the page, just like with real code?

Yes, I do that all the time if it's something I'll just be using once or twice for on page text.

Although not the greatest idea organization wise I'm sure because if I forget the name later I'll have to hunt down the link it's in.

This'll make things far less tedious, thanks!
