Elseif: Between if and Else When you have more than 2 outcomes in your decision making, you’re going to need to use the PHP elseif statement. The elseif keyword goes in between the if and the else keywords. Your primary condition is handled by the if statement. If the condition is met inside of the if statement, there’s no point in testing any other conditions. The code that’s inside of the if statement body is executed and the remainder of the elseif/else statements are skipped. When the condition is not met, PHP will check the elseif statements next.
