I've followed the documentation outlined here:


Where my custom field is member_companyname and is assigned as a matrix fieldtype.

{member_companyname sort="desc" limit="1"}
<input type="text" name="member_companyname" id="member_companyname" class="form-text" value="{member_companyname}" />

<input type="hidden" name="member_companyname[row_order][]" value="row_new_{count}">
<input type="hidden" name="member_companyname[row_new_{count}][col_id_20][]" value="[{entry_id}] [{url_title}] {title}">

but it's not rendering it and spits it out as this:

Company Name {member_companyname sort="desc" limit="1"} " />

  • What about adding the orderby parameter? Are there any variables between the tag pair that may be causing a conflict? Conditionals? Can you post what you have between the matrix tags? – Jean St-Amand Jul 18 '13 at 19:39
  • {member_companyname orderby="session_time" sort="desc"} {member_companyname} {/member_companyname} it just renders it just like that... should i email you? I feel that would be better, this support system is confusing and wont' allow me to paste my code. – Jeramiah Young Jul 18 '13 at 19:39
  • It might help to know that i'm using this inside {exp:zoo_visitor:update_form} – Jeramiah Young Jul 18 '13 at 19:45
  • You could paste your code in a pastie pastie.org – CreateSean Jul 18 '13 at 20:45
  • Thank you for writing me back so fast! I've also emailed you. pastie.org/8153638 – Jeramiah Young Jul 18 '13 at 20:59

This is not a Matrix issue, but a Zoo Visitor template tag issue. Here's the winning code per comments posted above. I'm posting here for all to see.

{exp:channel:entries entry_id="{zoo_visitor_id}" status="not closed" limit="1"}
    Company Name: <br />
    <input type="hidden" name="member_companyname[row_order][]" value="row_new_0">
    <input type="text" name="member_companyname[row_new_0][col_id_1]" value="{member_companyname sort="desc" limit="1"}{member_companyname}{/member_companyname}"/>
