I've got a nested set_list that adds "tags" (which are really just relationships) to a list that the frontend then loops through.

It's set like this

{!-- SO: Grab relevant tags --}

  {exp:playa:children field="blog_contributor"}

{!-- EO: Grab relevant tags --}

This works well, but only on the 2nd page refresh and after. The first time that you load the page the items set by the non-nested lists are fine but these bits are empty.

Looking at Mustash after first load it renders this:-

tag|=|Blog|&|url|=|/blog/|+|tag|=|Al Overdrive|&|url|=|/contributor/al-overdrive

But this isn't rendering on the front-end. The front-end code is

{exp:stash:get_list:nested name="tags" context="{segment_3}" scope="site"}
  <li><a href="{url}">{tag}</a></li>

I'm pretty sure I'm missing something obvious here, but any help is appreciated.

  • Dont think you've used the nested list properly. Nested list is for repeating content inside single content - ie. the playa field not the channel entry & playa field combined. You have set tags wrapped around nested yes ? Its definaltly a parse order issue but cant see the whole template logic. May 29, 2014 at 1:50

This was being caused because I was setting the list in the same file as I was getting it. If I moved the getting down a level by having an embed like {stash:embed:layouts:standard} which handled the UI it resolved itself.
