I have a set of "category" pages such as:

  • Dining (example.com/dining)
  • Nightlife (example.com/nightlife)

We are using Zoo Triggers to filter out the categories appropriately. I am using a snippet to insert an icon into the header of each category. This snippet looks like so:

{exp:stash:set name="logo"} 

The "logo" snippet looks much like this:

<div class="logo">
{exp:ifelse parse="inward"}
{if segment_1=='events'}
    <img src="{site_url}images/placeholders/icon-events.png" height="125" width="125"/>
{if:elseif triggers:segment_1=='dining'}
    <img src="{site_url}images/placeholders/icon-dining.png" height="125" width="125"/>
{if:elseif segment_1=='nightlife'}
    <img src="{site_url}images/placeholders/icon-nightlife.png" height="125" width="125"/>  
{if:elseif segment_1=='shopping'}
    <img src="{site_url}images/placeholders/icon-shopping.png" height="125" width="125"/>
{if:elseif segment_1=='arts-culture'}
    <img src="{site_url}images/placeholders/icon-arts.png" height="125" width="125"/>
    {exp:ce_img:pair src="{interior_logo}" max="125" crop="no|center,center" fallback_src="{site_url}images/placeholders/member-placeholder-logo.png" allow_scale_larger="yes"}
        <img src="{made}" alt="{title}" width="{width}" height="{height}" />

As you can see I am testing "dining" for Zoo Triggers segment_1, which is 'dining' when it parses. However, the conditional is not holding true as it were. In fact, not even the surrounding is passed from the snippet. So I suppose it isn't as much a why isn't this conditional working, but more of a why isn't this snippet working?

    FYI: The icons DO in fact display when the URL is www.example.com/dining, but when it is www.example.com/dining/category/thai do we run into the issue of the empty stash. Dec 3, 2012 at 20:06

    Do you need to use the triggers segment if the dining images does not change between www.example.com/dining and www.example.com/dining/category/thai? Dec 3, 2012 at 20:07
  • No, it was just a test. Drilling down. It seems anything inside the {exp:channel:entries disable="trackbacks|pagination" {triggers:entries}} tag does not stash properly. Dec 3, 2012 at 20:16

    Have you tried setting parse_conditionals="yes" on the {exp:stash:set} tag?

    I had. It turns out to be user error of course! I had a misplaced tag, that killed everything. Dec 3, 2012 at 22:03

In your code above 'logo' is a Stash variable, not a snippet. You would need to access it like {exp:stash:get name="logo"}. You could add type="snippet" to the stash:set tag when you set the variable and then access it like so: {logo}; however I'm not sure why you don't just use the original snippet itself: {snippet:masthead_logo} ?

  • I updated the code a bit. {logo} should actually have been {interior_logo}. The stash:set is inside a channel:entries tag because in some instances a page requires a custom logo/icon, but for the most part they are as defined. Dec 3, 2012 at 21:52
  • Ho hum. Figured it out. User error, of course. Thanks Mark. Dec 3, 2012 at 22:02

I tracked the issue down and it was an errantly placed {triggers:entries} tag. Completely my fault, but thankful that I had the answers I received to make me look long and hard at the template.

Thanks all!
