[Dancer-users] IF statement issues in template

Problem solved, but not sure why.
It looks like I wasn't using 'template_toolkit' as my layout engine after
all. As soon as I enabled that in my config.yml, the IF statement worked.
Now this is confusing, because I thought that doing a 'set template =>
'template_toolkit';' in the code itself before I pushed data to the template
would be enough.
Any ideas on why that didn't work as I expected?
