eZFlow on eZPublish5.3

eZFlow on eZPublish5.3

Wednesday 30 July 2014 3:33:35 pm - 2 replies

Hello everyone,

I've been trying to work with eZFlow on eZPublish5.3 using a Symfony bundle.

Some information about this I saw on

Also looked at the forum:

The main thing here is that even when I configure my ezpublish.yml to use a twig template, the route doesn't match.

I tried installing a clean version with the eZFlow extension ( but legacy_mode was enable by default and my bundle twig templates aren't working. 

Feels like i'm walking in circles here!

Does anyone can give me some clean direction?!

Hi Alexandre,

I once used flow with ez5 and rendered layout and everything using controllers.
There are some objects/methods you need to use (only available in symfony as a service -> php).

Basically you get the value from the page-type and hand it over to a controller/service (overriding the ez_render_field-template for the page-type is also an option).
Rendering the layout (zones), handing over the blocks to controllers and fetching the nodes with the service i mentioned above.

From there on everything should be incremental.

When I'm home i can check for a sample of a private profile of mine, but this will take till weekend.
Sorry for that.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your reply.

Just to see if I got it, I'll need to build a controller to handle the layout? Because the examples I saw on are using eZ controllers.

I also saw on eZDemoBundle the ezpage.yml file and searching the web some infos about overriding the legacy templates with my bundle twig templates would work... but I couldn't make it work.

Maybe your samples will help me understand it better.
