Wondering if this is a bug or a parse order issue (probably parse_order).

Code is below, but basically i am trying to work with template partials approach and showing related videos for an article entry. The related videos field is a relationship and it can accept multiple.

In the main article template i store all related videos in a list. Then embed a partial below to display the videos.

The using stash:get_list in the embed to loop through the videos.

The issue i am seeing is that in the main template the list has 1 item, but once in the embed, the list has 5 items, 4 of which are blank records.

Working on Stash 2.6.0 and EE 2.9.2

---Main template article/view.html

{!-- Channel Entries --}
{exp:channel:entries channel="article" url_title="{segment_2}" limit="1"}

{article_videos status="open|Featured"}
   {exp:stash:append_list name="videos" trim="yes" parse_tags="yes"}

{!-- DEBUG, OUTPUT = 1 --}
{exp:stash:get_list name="videos" prefix="related_videos"}



---Embedded stash partial stash_embeds/partials/videos.html

{!-- DEBUG, OUTPUT = 5 --}
{exp:stash:get_list name="videos" prefix="related_videos"}

Odd indeed, but it is messing up our conditionals and showing a bunch of blank images and cells.

Thanks, in advance

This is odd indeed! Have you tried moving the partial outside of the exp:channel:entries loop? In case its a parsing bug and the stash:embed:partials:videos tag is getting replaced multiple times or there's a parse order thing within stash?

Also, have you tried a straight forward {embed=""} on the videos partial, instead of the stash method?

Either of these methods may yeild clues if not a work around. Let us know how you get on!

  • Actually. I answered my own question but for some reason it didn't save here. The issue was with the name of the list "videos" was probably reserved by another channel or stash var. changed the name to "related_videos" and all is well. Thanks for he followup Commented May 22, 2015 at 12:09
