    I'm trying to figure out how I can have different link outputs depending on the text input of a custom user field.
    This is what I've tried, but withou any success.

    <xen:if is="{$value}=='coursera'"><a href="https://www.coursera.org/about/">{$value}</a>
    <xen:elseif is="{$value}=='OpenLearn by The Open University'"><a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/">{$value}</a>
    <xen:else />
    Basically, if the text input in the custom field is "Coursera", I want the output to link to Coursera URL or if the input text in the custom field is "OpenLearn by The Open University", I want the output to link to OpenLearn URL

    Any suggestions would be very much appreciated :)

    Is this in the value display HTML? That doesn't support template conditions. You can only use something along this line directly in the template. (The variables would be a bit different and context dependent.)
