I have moved embed code to be a snippet. After that move no_results stopped to work (part of the code below)

{exp:channel:entries channel="products" category="{segment_2_category_id}" orderby="title" sort="asc" limit="8" paginate="bottom" dynamic="no"}

            {if no_results}
                    <div class=""><p>No entries yet.</p></div>


Any clue why it has stopped?

    Is this code inside switchee?

  • 1. {if no_results} {/if} stop working or it is show all entryes like is no category="{segment_2_category_id}"? 2. needs to see what is around you snippet - possible some add-on has no_results tag also and execute before channel tag.

  • @RobsonSobral Correct - it is inside switchee. So I need to go back to embeds instead of snippets? Jan 29, 2014 at 15:28
  • @MaxLazar #1 - Is stop working (blank div) #2 - snippets were used inside switchee Jan 29, 2014 at 15:32

Well, it is issue related to switchee (thanks Robson Sobral for pointing me to that).

The {if no_results} behaviour is ‘owned’ by the outer wrapping tag not the inner tag. This is an EE bug/feature and not unique to Switchee.

Because of this, Switchee has it’s own no_results handling which will work for each nested switchee layer:

{if switchee_no_results}
