I have problem with related entries. I want to get related entries into a related entry. We are a travel agency and want to show selected travel packages in a "deals template".

Channels are:

deals, travel_packages, destinatios

Deals deal_01 relationship (to travel_packages) deal_01 relationship (to travel_packages) deal_01 relationship (to travel_packages) deal_01 relationship (to travel_packages) deal_01 relationship (to travel_packages)


date        text input
price       text input
taxes       text input
date        date
destination relationship (to destinations)
hotel       text input      


pictures_name   text input
maps        text input
description textarea

In "deals" template we have 5 relationship fields than are related with travel_packages. In deals template we chose the deals that we want to show.

Then in the template we have the follow code:

{exp:channel:entries channel="deals"} {related_entries id="deal_01"} Date: {date} (travel_packages field) Price: {price} (travel_packages field)

Here we want to show travel_packages relationship with destinations channel

we want to show {title} {pictures_name} {maps} Description: {description} But those tags are from destinations channels.

{related_entries} {/exp:channel:entries}

We tried to use related_entries again:

{related_entries id="destination"} {title} {pictures_name} {maps} Description: {description} {/related_entries}

but it doesn't work.

Thanks in advance.

    Which EE version are you using? The relationships fieldtype was replaced with a greatly improved version in 2.6.0. I would strongly recommend updating before attempting to mess with relationships of any level of complexity. – Jeremy Gimbel Sep 25 '13 at 2:17
  • Indeed, it is crucial you advise which version of EE you are using as the answers pre- and post-ee.2.6.x are wildly different. But relatively simple. Please re-engage for an answer :) – 3Easy Sep 26 '13 at 11:19

Guessing by the style of relationship tags you are using the best way to do this is to use an embed.


1.) Create a template with the code for the destinations with an embed variable in the entry_id section.

{exp:channel:entries channel="destinations" entry_id="{embed:eid}"}
     <h1>{title} Related to the Package Deal</h1>

2.) Put that embed inside your travel package related entries loop with the entry id of the package in a eid variable you pass to the embed variable.

{exp:channel:entries channel="deals"} 
  {related_entries id="deal_01"}
     Date: {date} Price: {price}
     {embed="path/to/embed/template" eid="{entry_id}"}
