I'm trying to spit out a table with first column being the # of row basically. However my {count} keeps resetting for each field loop. I need my count to stay the same

I have a VM Chosen field that I first loop through to display rows of all players in that field. I use {count} and works fine. Then I loop through a grid field and list out all players from that but the {count} resets to 1 because it's a new loop. I have all this wrapped inside a channel entries tag with limit="1" to a specific entry_id.

Can you create a variable and increment it in EE without a plugin? I've never used Stash but it sounds like that would be a solution?

  • If your using grid have u tried grid:coumt ? May 4, 2017 at 12:27
  • ya but that would still start at 1. I just realized I could probably use PHP to set a variable and increment it I bet.

yes.. Php was the way to go here in the template. I created a php variable set to 1 and then within each loop I just incremented it and spit out the php variable so it kept a 1-10 list and never reset
