At the moment I just want to display some data stored in a matrix field in the Zoo Visitor channel, but no data is shown. I am able to update native member data via Zoo Visitor.

My code at the moment (reduced template code):

# {billing_info} = Matrix field
# {billing_company_name} = text field within matrix
# {billing_reference} = text field within matrix
# {billing_company_vat} = text field within matrix

    <input type="text" class="form-control" id="billing_company_name" name="billing_info[billing_company_name]" placeholder="Company Name" value="{billing_company_name}">
    <input type="text" class="form-control" id="billing_reference" name="billing_info[billing_reference]" placeholder="Reference" value="{billing_reference}">
    <input type="text" class="form-control" id="billing_company_vat" name="billing_info[billing_company_vat]" placeholder="VAT No." value="{billing_company_vat}">

What am I doing wrong? I am logged in on the page.

Tags like the ones below are working fine.


Currently running EE 2.9 + Zoo Visitor 1.3.32 + Matrix 2.6

  • Louis, can you change the name="" custom fields straight ([) brackets to curls ({)...

  • Hi Nutmeg, that wouldn't make any sense in this case because I'm only trying to read/load data from EE, it's not about posting at this point. It's about the code inside the value="{blabla}" param. I have tried it any way but no go :(

  • I have just tested a simple text field (not within a matrix field) and that works fine. Is there some known compatibility issue with Matrix, Zoo and EE 2.9 maybe?

  • This is strange. I created a new Matrix field and that one works fine... Can a Matrix field go corrupt?

  • OK, I not notice that the matrix field that is ordered as last (I have 4 matrix fields in that channel), is that one that displays the contents. The others don't display anything. That's why the new field I created did display data, as a newly created field is always added as the last field.

OK, after hours and hours of aggravation I followed the advice of the Zoo developer on the Devot-ee forums, where we did some more testing, to file a bug report with EE. I first did a bug search and found my error... If only I would have known this before.
