I need to get this work — how can I code this to get the parse-order I need?

{exp:channel:entries channel='{exp:plugin entry_id="{segment_3}"}' …

As you can see in the code above: I read out the 3rd segment of the url, paste it in a attr of a plugin and use its output as a value of the channel-attr of exp:channel:entries.

Right now it does not work, the plugin with the segment-readout does work outside of the exp:channel:entries-Tag, therefore I think it is a parse order issue.

put exp:channel:entries inside embeded template

{embed="site/channel" my_plugin_ids="{exp:plugin entry_id="{segment_3}"}


{exp:channel:entries channel='{embed:my_plugin_ids}' …


put exp:channel:entries inside your plugin tag's

{exp:plugin entry_id="{segment_3}" parse="inward"}
    {exp:channel:entries channel='{my_plugin_ids}' …

  • … use embeds … omg, I've been away from active developing for to long! :-) THX Max!
