updated with EE and Structure Version

EE 2.7.2 Structure 3.3.4

I'm building a site with structure and for each section of the site the child pages will be in the side bar so that if I'm on domain.com/about In the sidebar I will see:

About (h4 tag)

--sub page

--sub page

--sub page

However with the code (below) I"m using it output all entries for the entire site. Please advise.


What I end up with however is


-- subpage

-- subpage

-- subpate


-- subpage

-- subpage

  • May be too obvious, but is there a value in the URL for segment_1?

I just resolved this, turns out it was a low variables/parse order issue. I needed to preparse segment_1 etc... on the main template. My code now looks like this

    {exp:low_variables:single var="lv-sidebar"

And then in the Low Variable I have this:


{if structure:child_ids != ''}

Now weverything works just fine


Why don't you use the last version of Structure? 3.3.13 It seems that in version 3.3.12 a update was made for Nav tag output bug for ee 2.7


  • Worfoual, 3.3.13 is listed on devotee as the latest version, yet the version, I freshly installed last week for structure is 3.3.4 (higher number) so I'm not sure why that is or what would happen if I overwrote the existing higher version with the devotee downloaded version.

  • 3.3.13 is higher than 3.3.4 If you download 3.3.13 you will also get information about updating, you can find it also here: buildwithstructure.com/documentation/upgrading

  • OKay - upgraded to 3.3.13 but the side nav is still not respecting the start from parameter.
