This is my Low Variable var="lv_article":

{exp:channel:entries limit="1" channel="{segment_1}"}
     <h1 class="title">{title}</h1>                   

When it's parsed inside Stash, the channel data is not parsed when channel="{segment_1}" is used:


{exp:stash:set name='main'}
   {exp:ifelse parse="inward"}
          {if segment_1 == 'science' AND segment_2 == ''}  
                  {exp:low_variables:parse var="lv_article"}


I tried {exp:channel:entries limit="1" channel="{segment_1}" parse="inward"}, it doesn´t resolved the problem. Does someone knows how to resolve this problem??

Thanks in advance,


  • Do you have early parsing turned on in your Low Variables settings? Feb 1, 2014 at 18:14
  • Hi Jean, yes i did. I read again the docs, i'm using: {exp:low_variables:parse var="lv_article" preparse:segment_1="{segment_1}"}. It's working fine!!!

Looking at the content of your lv_article variable, you could just use the variable syntax instead of the tag syntax:


Having early parsing enabled has no effect when using the tag syntax, only when using the above variable syntax.
