I have these to arrays that I need to merge into one array, but can't figure it out.

Please advise

{% set entries = craft.entries.section('publications').search('nonMembers:0') %}

{% set entries = craft.entries.section('improveYourClub').search('membersExclusive:1') %}

Just a few side notes:

  1. neither the first entries variable nor the second entries variable is an array - both are objects of kind craft\elements\db\EntryQuery (or craft\ElementCriteriaModel if it's Craft 2).
  2. .search('nonMembers:0') can be shortened to nonMembers(0) (or "0" or "not 1" depending on the type) and search('membersExclusive:1') to membersExclusive(1) it will increase your performance as well

So far about that.. You can merge arrays in Twig via |merge filter

{% set values = [1, 2] %}

{% set values = values|merge(['apple', 'orange']) %}

{# values now contains [1, 2, 'apple', 'orange'] #}


To address your case specifically, you'll need something like this...

{% set entriesOne = craft.entries.section('publications').search('nonMembers:0').find() %}
{% set entriesTwo = craft.entries.section('improveYourClub').search('membersExclusive:1').find() %}

{% set allEntries = entriesOne|merge(entriesTwo) %}
  • In that case how do I merge the two objects

    You can't merge objects. You can only merge the results of both queries Aug 27, 2018 at 17:27
  • @CreateSean What Robin is saying is, add a .find() to the end of both queries. Then you'll have arrays of elements (instead of ElementCriteriaModels).

  • adding .find() returns a php notice with an Array to string conversion error. I had already tried that.

  • @CreateSean Just edited Robin's answer to use your specific code... give that a shot.
