Fetch reverse related objects and sort_by attribute

Fetch reverse related objects and sort_by attribute

Monday 22 January 2007 11:58:05 pm - 3 replies

Hi,
as the documentation states: when using "fetch(content, reverse_related_objects...)" it is not possible to perform sort_by with the attribute parameter, as it is possible with "fetch(content, list, ...)"
This is really a pity! Does anybody have a good suggestion how to use "fetch(content, reverse_related_objects...)" AND to perform sorting by attribute in a different way?
I really need this...

Thanks,
Ulrich

I have some problems getting inside a template the nice url to a "related object" - and looking around I found these:

Thanks.

I don't intend to join EOR since eZpublish manages to cover pretty much of that functionality out of the box today.

The forum thread is interesting. In the middle of it somebody explains that for sorting he creates a sort function, written in PHP and located in index.php.
Is this the only way to go for me, too?

Hi,

I suggest to create a custom sort template function (that could be used to sort any node/object table).

Eg :

{$unsorted_objects = fetch(content, reverse_related_objects...)
$sorted = {$unsorted|sort('your_attribute',true())}
