I have a content builder matrix that I'm looping through to build my page. That code works with no problems.

{% set content = entry.pageBuilder.all() %}
{% for block in content %}
    {% include "blocks/_" ~ block.type ignore missing %}
{% endfor %}

Above that block, in the same template, I'm trying to create a text blurb from one particular field type within that matrix. When I try to define what field to pull the blurb from, suddenly the above code only outputs the content of the blurb field. This is the code that breaks my template:

{% set blurb = entry.pageBuilder.type('copy,faq').limit(1).all() %}

But, if I move it below the "set content..." chunk, it works as expected.

It seems like these should be two completely unrelated chunks of code, and I don't understand why the "set blurb..." code is interfering with the other code when placed above it. Am I missing something?

  • If you change ‘blurb’ to another word does it have any effect? If you print the block.type rather than import the partial does it display the types as expected?

This is a change in behaviour from Craft 2 to Craft 3 and here is the explanation.

In short, you need to clone your query (docs), something like the below should work:

{# Initiate your query #}
{% set content = entry.pageBuilder %}

{# Clone the original query to get your blurb #}
{% set blurb = clone(content).type('copy,faq').limit(1).all() %}

{# Get everything #}
{% for block in content.all() %}
    {% include "blocks/_" ~ block.type ignore missing %}
{% endfor %}
  • Thanks! I missed that change, and somehow it hasn't come up for me until now.
