I've got a generic template that can display entries from different channels. How in the template can I test if a field has been has been assigned to any given channel?

  • Why not check for the field's existence in an entry? Commented Jun 26, 2014 at 16:00

Twig has a "is defined" test that you can apply to a variable to see if it exists:

{% if entry.possibleField is defined %}
{% else %}
{% endif %}

And here is more information on using is defined.
