I have migrated a channel to using a fluid field instead of the old setup of one body field and one extended text field. The fluid field includes a textarea and a grid field that of course can be used any number of times each.

I managed to sort out that the index displays only the first instance of the textarea and the first instance of the grid field even if there are more. I do that like this:


{if {westeros_content:count name="westeros_text"} == "1"}{content}{/if}

{if {westeros_content:count name="westeros_image"} == "1"}
<div class="EntryImage">
<a href="http://{content:file}">{content:image:medium}</a>


However, I would also like to offer a “read on” link IF there us more than one text field, and I can’t seem to figure out how to construct that. What I tried was this:

{if {westeros_content:count name="westeros_text"}  > "1"}
<div class="EntryExtended"><a href="http://{comment_url_title_auto_path}">read on >></a></div>

And that gives me the following error:

You have an invalid conditional in your template. Please review your conditionals for an unclosed string, invalid operators, a missing }, or a missing {/if}.

Parser State: Invalid Condition: Not enough operands for operator ” > “.

In Template “Announcements/index” on line 90

Removing the inner curly brackets also do not work, so I can’t quite figure out what I am missing here.

Put quotes around the first half of your conditional, and change the inner quotes to single quotes (to stop EE parser getting confused) - something like:

{if "{westeros_content:count name='westeros_text'}"  > "1"}


  • Thanks, that gets rid of the error! Still doesn't actually give a read on link when there's more than one instance of westeros_text, however, so I must have something else wrong with the syntax. Hrm. Apr 9, 2019 at 21:31
