I'm currently working on integration some caching behaviour using {% cache %} tags. This works mostly just fine, but I have some issues when I work with related entries.

For example I have a list of categories with an indicator to show many entries they are assigned to.

  • New (3)
  • Used (2)
  • Broken (3)

If I change an entry and add a category, the cache refreshes and shows the correct amount. But if I remove a category from an entry I get the wrong number until I refresh the cache manually.

Is this the expected behaviour? Or do I miss something here?

Here is my code example:

{% cache unless not craft.config.cache %}
{% set categorySlug = productSection ~ 'Categories' %}


{% for category in craft.categories.group(categorySlug) %}
  {% set entryCount = craft.entries.relatedTo(category).total() %}
  {% if entryCount > 0 %}

      {{ category.title }} ( {{ entryCount }} )

  {% endif %}
{% endfor %}


{% endcache %}

This sounds like a bug, and I think I know why. Can you try changing the {% set entryCount ... line to this?

{% set entryCount = craft.entries.relatedTo(category.id).total() %}
  • Sure, thanks. I get the same behaviour. Adding works, removing not. Nov 3, 2014 at 7:58
