I'm working with EE v2.9.3 and Structure v3.3.14.5 I have simple structure hierarchy

- parent 1
---child 1a
---child 1b
- parent 2
---child 2a

and so on. I want to create json for my javascript file. So, I started with creating snippet with that structure:

<script type="text/javascript">
var d = [
      {exp:structure:entries channel="first-channel" disable="categories|category_fields|member_data|pagination" dynamic="no" status="open"}
        "name": "{title}",
        "locations": [
            "name": "{title}",
            "phone": "xxx",
            "email": "xxx",                


And it's working. I can see my objects created with names parent 1, parent 2 etc. Now I want to create "locations" key (whatever there's 1 or more entries) which will be contains my child entries like child 1a, 1b etc. I tried with nested {exp:structure:entires} but it doesn't work. So my question is - how can I create locations key based on nested exp loop?

How did you nest the second entries tag? If you just added it within it might not work, might need to use an embed. But someone else might know if a better way.

  • I just drag&drop positions in structure tree but entries have proper parent_id values.
