I have a page in a website created with expressionengine. In my site, posts are shown with exerpt and by clicking the 'readmore" using {title_permalink=''} you go to a 'single-post' page. On that template that is then shown i wan't to display some message from another channel, but the result is nothing... I do have result when i use the same code on the page where all the postst are.

Can one place a 'entries tag' on a page which is generated by a {title_permalink=''}??

When displaying channel:entries on a page where the url does not determine that particular conent, for example a sidebar list of recent entries you need to add the dynamic="no" parameter to your channel entries tag.

  • That's was the problem i didn't had the dynamic="" parameter in my Channel Entries tag! Thank you!

It doesn't matter how you link to the page, it matters what the current page's URL is.

Yes, you should be able to use a basic Channel Entries tag with a couple of important parameters. Note: Do not put one Channel Entries tag inside of another.

{exp:channel:entries channel="my_channel" dynamic="no" limit="5"}
