Listing/Detail Pages | Content not displaying on Detail page.

Got a bit of a weird one. Built a listing/detail page over two pages. The listing page works fine, and the link also works, taking you to a page that displays the code that’s included in the layout.

But when you go to the details page, the content from the template isn’t displayed.

I've followed the two tutorials: https://docs.grabaperch.com/perch/content/functions/how-do-i-create-list-detail-pages/ https://docs.grabaperch.com/perch/content/functions/two-page-list-and-detail/

I've managed to get them working on another install. But when I've gone to amend the code for the site I'm working on, it's not working as it should.

Here's the code from the relevant pages and templates:

/case-studies/index.php

<?php include($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].'/controlpanel/runtime.php'); ?>
<?php perch_layout('header'); ?>
<?php perch_layout('topbar'); ?>

  <?php perch_content_create('Case Studies', array(
    'template' => 'project_item.html',
    'multiple' => true,
    'edit-mode' => 'listdetail',
  )); ?>

  <?php perch_content_custom('Case Studies', array(
    'template' => 'project_listing.html',
  )); ?>

<?php perch_layout('footer'); ?>

/case-studies/project.php

<?php include($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].'/controlpanel/runtime.php'); ?>
<?php perch_layout('header'); ?>
<?php perch_layout('topbar'); ?>

  <?php perch_content_create('Case Studies', array(
    'page'     => '/case-studies/index.php',
    'template' => 'project_item.html',
    'filter'   => 'slug',
    'match'    => 'eq',
    'value'    => perch_get('s'),
    'count'    => 1,
  )); ?>

<?php perch_layout('footer'); ?>

I've got debugging enabled too:

UPDATE perch2_content_regions SET regionOrder=0 WHERE regionPage='/case-studies/project.php' AND regionKey='Case Studies' LIMIT 1

I get the impression the template isn't finding the content in the database – it is there – and that's why it's going to the template, but not displaying it.

Anyone come across a similar issue and resolved it?

Never mind. I was being an idiot.

Notice in /case-studies/project.php? I'm calling the wrong function (perch_content_create instead of perch_content_custom).

At least I'm not going mad :p
