The footer of my site needs to pull through the 6 most recent Case Studies. Here is the code, embedded in a template file for the footer of the site:

<li><strong>Case Studies</strong></li>
{exp:channel:entries channel="case_studies" limit="6"}
    <li><a href="{path="case_studies/case_study/{url_title}"}">{title}</a></li>

Nice and simple, right?

This works perfectly on my homepage and under some URLs, but not all of them. For example, when I visit http://example.com/about/latest_news it will appear, as will http://example.com/press_articles/ - but http://example.com/services doesn't.

Is there anything obvious setting or reason for this?

Yep, add dynamic="no" parameter to the channel:entries tag :)

  • Brilliant. Thanks, I'm a bit of a beginner!

This is easy: You need dynamic="off" on your exp:channel:entries tag.

EE automatically filters entries based on the URL, expecting that to contain entry IDs or URL Titles.

  • The other answer says dynamic="no" rather than off, which seems to work, but thanks for answering promptly.

  • Edit: Interestly, both off and no work the same...

    Yeah, off used to be the value set in EE1.x, which carried over but is not documented.
