if else

My question is this: Is it possible to put an lf else statement in another if else statement, and if so how would one do that? I cannot post code because it is of a sensitive nature, but I am attempting to do this and was wondering if it is doable.

Of course. The inner if/else statements will work the same way.

if (this == 'this') {
  if (that == 'that') {
    if (those == 'those') {
        // check one passed, check two passed, and check three passed!
    } else {
       // check one passed, check two passed, but not check three
    }
  } else {
     // check one passed, but not check two
  }
} else {
  // nothing passed
}
