Importance of Order for if() statements?
I am assuming that the order is important for if(!empty($search) and if(!empty($category))?
Can anyone confirm?
Thanks in advance!
In this particular case it doesn't matter since you're using the logical operator "and". The result of only the first part, !empty($search), will not give us enough info to evaluate the condition as a whole.
Only time it can sorta matter is with an "or". Still, with an "or" the order doesn't make that big a difference
Let me know if this helps here
