Equivalent of content list in twig

Monday 02 December 2013 4:35:20 pm - 1 reply


I'm new to EZ5.I have knowledge of eZ 4 and Symfony, but it is difficult to understand the combination of the two.

I am currently trying to integrate my design html / css in my website.

I have no problem to retrieve content via ez_render_field, but I do not know how to call the child nodes in a template. Before I used the "content list", now I think hat I must define a function controller, it seems long !

Are there function available in templates that allow me to do the same thing as the content list?

If not can I create one in a unique controller and call in all my templates?

Thank you in advance

Hi Johann

In eZ 5, we completely separated controller and view logic, so fetch functions are now completely gone (they were controllers in views basically).

You have 2 options:

  1. Override the view controller to enrich the view of everything you need (best practice)
  2. Do a sub-request to a secondary controller which will do the work.

You can also have a look at the DemoBundle which provides a lot of examples. See what is done for the blog posts list: controller / template / config.

It's very quick and easy (I promise!)
