Fallback to legacy module : pagelayout management

Fallback to legacy module : pagelayout management

Monday 15 April 2013 11:25:41 am - 4 replies


When we define a twig pagelayout to be used when we fallback in legacy mode (as explained here :, the twig layout is working fine when viewing content. 

The problem is when requesting a module (like user/login). The block "content" in twig layout is not filled in, the layout is rendered giving a module_result as a parameter like you can see here :

Doest it means that for modules we should display the content manually with the variable module_result.content ? 

Why this difference of behaviour ?

The difference here is that if you configure a twig template to render legacy modules, it's rendered as a layout, and as it only concerns legacy, you receive the same variable as before.

Basically, it means that you need to render module_result.content yourself in this template. If your layout is used both for non-legacy and legacy purpose, you can easily check it :

{% block content %}
{% if module_result is defined %}{{ module_result.content }}{% endif %}
{% endblock %}

This was made in order to make layout reusable, even for stuff coming from legacy. Feel free make your layout for legacy modules inherit your base one, defining the content block and displaying module_result.content. This should easily fix the problem happy.gif Emoticon

However I agree that documentation should be more explicit on this point.

Ok, no problem if it's normal, except maybe update the doc blunk.gif Emoticon 

I have already made the same code as you propose in the content block and it works great blunk.gif Emoticon 

Thanks !
