I have a series of structure items, each with a product id, based on this id I would like to load in an additional template.

Something like this:

{% set embedAsset = entry.productId %}
{% include "embedAsset" %}

Any ideas?

Your code should work if you remove the quotation marks enclosing your variable.

{% set embedAsset = entry.productId %}
{% include embedAsset %}

If you want, you can use string concatenation to add a path or extension to it.

{% set embedAsset = '_products/' ~ entry.productId ~ '.html' %}
{% include embedAsset %}

You could also add a "fallback template", that loads in case your dynamic template does not exist (read the Twig docs for more info about this).

{% set embedAsset = '_products/' ~ entry.productId ~ '.html' %}
{% set defaultAsset = '_products/default.html' %}
{% include([embedAsset, defaultAsset]) %}

  • @carlcs A variable should be in single parenthesis according to Twig docs. Commented Mar 27, 2017 at 15:28

    @DominikK interesting, it seems like this is new for Twig 2. See the include tag documentation for Twig 1 in comparison.
