I have a problem with the parse_variables() method once my data contains an array at a certain depth:

foreach ($cvs->result_array() as $id => $row)
    $variables[] = array(
        'id' => $row['id'],
        'name' => $row['name'],
        'template_id' => $row['template_id'],
        'template_purchases' => $this->cv_model->template_purchases($row['template_id']), 
        'pages' => array(
                'page_count' => 1, 
                'regions' => array(
                    'region_count' => 1, 
                    'region_data' => 'something here'

return $this->EE->TMPL->parse_variables($tagdata, $variables);

What I'm finding is that it's fine if region_data is NOT an array. But the minute I make that an associative array I get an error:

A PHP Error was encountered

Severity: Notice

Message: Undefined offset: 1

A PHP Error was encountered

Severity: Notice

Message: Array to string conversion

Filename: libraries/Template.php

Line Number: 3789

Is there a limit to the number of levels you can nest here? I'm trying to achieve something like this in the template:


        <div class="page" id="page-{page_count}" data-template-id="template-{template_id}">


                <div class="region" id="page-{page_count}-region-{region_count}">




  • I am getting the same error in step 2 of my checkout process and have no idea where to look or what the problem could be?
