I can't get a simple GWCode Categories tag to display anything.

{exp:gwcode_categories channel="general_areas"}

But this displays the list just fine:


I'm stumped.

  • This may be an easy one but have you ensured it's installed properly? What version of GWCC and EE are you running?

  • It shows up in the installed Plugins list. Running v1.8.9 with EE 2.5.5.

  • Very strange. I can't recreate this issue. It outputs fine for me every time and I have the same versions installed. Are you wrapping the tags in anything which could be causing a problem? Are you getting any errors returned?

  • There is nothing in the template other than that tag. I just tried turning on template debugging but it does not display. Something fishy is going on here!

  • Got the template debugger working. No errors but it does show that GWCode is return no results. I added {if no_results}No results{/if} to the tag and it does display "No results". I don't understand why GWCode Categories would show no results when the EE categories tag shows them just fine.

Finally got it working. This is an MSM setup and it seems you must provide a site id to the tag.
