I have two channels; A and B. Channel B has a Playa field that relates that entry to entries from Channel A.

In my template, I am wanting to show all the entries from Channel A and display the title of entries from Channel B via the Playa Parent tag.

Here is my code:

{exp:channel:entries channel="channelA" limit="1000"} 
<article id="{url_title}" class="info"> 
        {exp:playa:parents channel="channelB"}
        <li><a href="{path='/site/view/{url_title}'}">{title}</a></li>

If the channel entry limit is set to anything higher than 1, the template is a white screen. But if the limit is set to "1" it works for the most recent entry only.

If i remove the Playa code, the template shows as it should. Is there something I am missing?


  • Does it work if the limit is 2 or 5? 1000 is a lot of entries. Dec 30, 2012 at 20:04

You might be running into PHP’s memory limit. You can read about how to increase that here: http://www.hostucan.com/webmaster-tutorials/increase-php-memory-limit

  • That is exactly the case.

Just in case... have you tried dynamic="no" in your outer entries tag?

  • I would also suggest (though you may have removed them just for simplicity's sake here) adding params to both tag pairs for disable= for example. Dec 29, 2012 at 12:04
  • Jim - yep dynamic="no" was my first go to, no dice. Jean - disable was in place, no dice either.
