I'm currently trying to call variables called {{entry.title}}, {{entry.latitude}} and so on in an array.

This is what it looks like:

{% set markerArray = [] %}
{% for entry in craft.entries.section('xSpots') %}
    {% set tempMarkerArray = [
    ] %}
    {% set markerArray = markerArray|merge(tempMarkerArray) %}
{% endfor %}

When calling {{markerArray[0].name}} afterwards I am expecting it to return the proper title of the entry in Craft, instead it only returns "{{entry.title}}", as if the variable is not properly recognized while filling the array.

Any help? Am I doing something fundamentally wrong? Thanks in advance.

To output variables inside an array like that you'd simply omit the twig braces.. at the moment the ' are telling whatever is inside them to output as a string.

UPDATE: try adding parentheses around each variables like so

{'name':(entry.title),'url':(entry.Url),'lat':(entry.latitude),'lng':(entry.longitude)} ] %}
  • I already tried that, however when removing the ' craft throws an error at me: Oct 21, 2016 at 9:03
  • 'A hash key must be a quoted string, a number, a name, or an expression enclosed in parentheses (unexpected token "punctuation" of value "{".' Oct 21, 2016 at 9:03
  • That totally worked! Thank you for the super fast answer! :) Oct 21, 2016 at 9:08
