When trying to query a specific single entry in a section I get back a result but all the fields inside that result are nulled.


{% set kundenmeinungen = craft.entries.section('unterseiten').slug('kundenmeinungen').one() %}

{{ dump(kundenmeinungen) }}

returns multiple fields that all look like this even though there is content inside the cms:

["seitenContent"]=> NULL

Any ideas?

  • What happens if you call dump(kundenmeinung.seitenContent)? Do you have more than one site configured?

  • @Johannes you saved me. I got it working by using this: {% set kundenmeinungen = craft.entries.section('unterseiten').slug('kundenmeinungen').one() %} {{ dump(kundenmeinungen.seitenContent.type('textbewertungMitBild').all()) }}

  • Looks like seitenContent is not a trivial field type but maybe a matrix field?

  • @Johannes yes it was a matrix field. All the other fields were easy to get but the matrix field not. I struggled for hours with this.

  • Oh crap, hours? Well, don't hesitate to create questions here. Also, have a look at the Craft Discord server.

Assuming seitenContent is a matrix field, here's why it returns a null value: If you query for an entry all trivial fields are loaded right away, however non-trivial fields types like matrix, entry, asset and so on are only loaded if they are actually accessed in the Twig template (lazy loading). This is why {{ dump(kundenmeinungen) }} shows a null value on that field.

PS: If you would eager load that matrix field it would show the actual content in the dump command. To eager load a relational field you would do something like this:

{% set kundenmeinungen = craft.entries.section('unterseiten').slug('kundenmeinungen').with(['seitenContent']).one() %}

Note that kundenmeinungen.seitenContent is an array then. You have to access it like kundenmeinungen.seitenContent[0].
