I have a gallery page wherein there are multiple individual galleries/sub-pages. I handle this function by using-

    if( is_page( 39 ) ) {
    echo do_shortcode('[nggallery id=1]');
    } else {

I'm wondering, is there a way to include page specific content in that? For example, if that code is used to show A's gallery, how can I include A's bio info within that statement(using <p>)?

It's not clear exactly what your meaning. Does echo "<p>stuff</p>"; not work? Your shortcode is already specific to post/page 39 – Tom J Nowell Oct 4 '12 at 16:34
Sorry for not being clear; I've not worked with many conditional statements like this before. If echo "<p>stuff</p>"; is supposed to work, how can I include that in addition to the gallery info? – user1255049 Oct 4 '12 at 16:36
put it on the next line, you should read up on some more PHP – Tom J Nowell Oct 4 '12 at 16:43

You can do that via echo, just place it on a new line inside the if conditionals braces { and }


if(this statement is true)
{ // <- do everything between here
     stuff that happens if the statement is true
} // <-- and here

     // stuff that happens if the statement is not true

So you could do this:

if( is_page( 39 ) ) {
    echo do_shortcode('[nggallery id=1]');
    // add more stuff here, e.g. echo "<p>Bio info etc</p>";
    echo "<p>Bio</p>";
