Err... sorry. The logic was there but my fingers got a bit ahead of my brain. The check works, but if you want to just check if it's empty turn the conditional to a negative, like so:

if (!$testVar) {

That makes it "If NOT $testVar"

> I may be crazy, but wouldn't if ($variable) work just as well? If the string is empty it'll return a negatory on that check.
