Thread tagged as: Question

I can't get 'filter by related items' working?

Hi

Setup

I've got a collection called Staff and I'm using perch:related to link it to another collection called Solutions

I'm using this in my Solutions collection template

<!--solution-detail.html-->
<perch:related id="staff_related" collection="Staff" label="Staff">
    <perch:content id="staff_name" type="text">, 
    <perch:content id="staff_position" type="text"> 
</perch:related>

This is the detail template I'm using in my Staff collection

<!--staff-detail.html-->
THIS IS A TEST
<perch:content id="staff_name" title type="text" label="Name">       
<perch:content id="staff_position" type="text" label="Position">

When adding new items to the Solutions collection the perch:related option shows up in Perch Admin - this bit works fine.

Question

I'd like to filter by related items as described in the docs. Here's what I'm using on my solutions.php page.

perch_collection('Solutions',[              
    'filter' => 'staff_related.staff_name',
    'match' => 'eq',
    'value'  => 'Janet Thompson',
    'template' => 'staff-detail.html'
]);

The filter uses the dot syntax method, perch:related ID followed by the perch:content ID I want to filter on.

I've hardcoded the value, the fictional Janet Thompson is present in the Staff collection

When I refresh the page, all I see is are the words THIS IS A TEST from the staff-detail.html template.

It's not picking up id="staff_name" or id="staff_position"

I've checked perch_debug and php_error.log no errors in either.

Any ideas why?

No, I've no idea why. Have you turned on debug?
