Fetching nodes, while excluding the actual node

Fetching nodes, while excluding the actual node

Thursday 23 November 2006 5:19:15 pm - 2 replies


I am still a newbie, who happens to have to build several sites with eZPublish in no time.

Anyways to the Problem:

I read the following page, explaining the list Operator of the template fetch functions.


I understand the sorting algorithms, but I cannot find one, excluding a specific node, while displaying all other in the respective folder.

The situation: I have a a category (=folder) named e.g. "Sports". In it I store all articles related to Sports. I also build a special pagelayout for article presentation, so I have a column displaying the article ($module_result.content) and a right column displaying an ad and additional information.

The additional information should display "More related articles" and "More from this author".

So the problem is:

1.How do I fetch all other article titles of the sports section (display in additional information) without fetching the actual displayed node title, which is also a sports article.

2. How do I retrieve all other article -titles of the author of the actual node, excluding the actual node's title itself.

Since, I guess this is a common and important issue, when using eZ for a "News Site", I hope you guys can help me out....

Any help is really appreciated. thanks

and sorry if I really missed something obvious, I am an Newbie and tried to find a solution by myself, but in vain.


P.S.. I use eZ Publish 3.8.6

Anybody with an idea?

Is the description of the problem not clear?

If not, please let me know.

You can't solve all with the fetch functions, but the solution here would be to exclude the specific node in the template:

For example:

{def $nodes=fetch( 'content', 'list',
        hash( 'parent_node_id', 42,
              'depth', 3 ) )}
{foreach $nodes as $node}
    {if $node.node_id|eq(123)}
    {$node.name|wash} <br />
