  • Yes, TV Panel Title is correct.

    Quote from: markh at Jan 06, 2012, 12:32 AM
    With the modified snippet I tried, I think it should work.

    Is the name (key) of your TV actually "TV Panel Title"? Not the caption, but the name.
    • Got it! The list of check boxes is back - I found the wrong ID being referenced in the listMyResources snippet.

      Any idea why the publish check is being ignored when compiling the list of related pages? I tried changing

      'published' => 1,

      'published' => true,

      'published' = '1',

      ...but it made no difference.

      • Also, how would you order the output by TV Page Title?
        I tried re-ordering the resources themselves but it made no difference to the output...I guess it's outputting them as it finds them in the database.
        • Thanks again for your help Mark, it's very much appreciated!
          • Either of those published checks should work, MODX is pretty smart at things like that.

            You can't easily change the sort the way it's been coded now (or rather 3 months ago).. alternative method would be to instead of looping over the $ids var, to get a collection of objects (using $modx->getCollection) and using the sortby method on an xPDOQuery.

            Bit too tired to do that now though, sorry tongue

            If you're somewhat good with PHP you can figure it out using this doc: http://rtfm.modx.com/display/xPDO20/Retrieving+Objects (the getCollection and xPDOQuery ones mainly).

            • Is it possible to modify the parent in multilingual website using Babel, for instance I have 3 contexts...

              @EVAL return $modx->runSnippet('getResources',array('parent' => 18));

              I would like to make it work like this:

              [[BabelTranslation? &resourceId=`18` &contextKey=`[[*context_key]]`]]

              So I would like to take linked-translated parent '18'

              any clues?
              • [SOLVED]

                hopefully there is a neat solution - "BabelResourceIdArray" that could be applied in conjunction with getresources


                • Hello

                  I'm also using the tutorial and have the same problems as the OP. Following this thread I've been able to get the TVs from various resources to be pulled in but cannot get the checkbox list to show multiple parents. I noticed Zorba had the same problem and resolved it by
                  Got it! The list of check boxes is back - I found the wrong ID being referenced in the listMyResources snippet.
                  but I can only seem to get one of three parents I wish to use to show. I'm sure it'll be something very simple but I can't see what I'm missing?

                  I realise I'm only calling one parent in the listProducts snippet but thought that was just a fallback if it can't find the children of other parents. When I change that parent ID to 4, 5 or 6 the checklist shows the corresponding children but not all three parents together. Does that need to be an array too?

                  Here are my pieces of code:

                  ListProducts Snippet
                  $parent = $modx->getOption('parent',$scriptProperties,5);
                  $parentObj = $modx->getObject('modResource',$parent);
                  if (!($parentObj instanceof modResource)) { return ''; }
                  $resArray = $parentObj->getMany('Children');
                  $resources = array();
                  foreach($resArray as $res) {
                    if ($res instanceof modResource) {
                      $resources[] = $res->get('pagetitle') . '==' . $res->get('id');
                  $out = implode("||",$resources);
                  return $out;

                  RelatedProducts snippet
                  if (empty($input)) { return 'This article is so unique, that we couldn\'t find anything related to it!'; }
                  $tpl = $modx->getOption('tpl',$scriptProperties,'relatedProductsTpl');
                  if ($modx->getChunk($tpl) == '') { return 'We found some related pages, but don\'t know how to present it.'; }
                  $ids = explode('||', $input);
                  $output = array();
                  foreach ($ids as $key => $value) {
                    $resource = $modx->getObject('modResource',array(
                      'published' => 1,
                      'id' => $value));
                    if ($resource instanceof modResource) {
                      $ta = $resource->toArray();
                      $tvs = $resource->getTemplateVars();
                      foreach ($tvs as $tv) {
                         $ta[$tv->get('name')] = $tv->get('value');
                      $output[] = $modx->getChunk($tpl,$ta);
                  return implode('',$output);

                  relatedProducts TV input
                  @EVAL return $modx->runSnippet('listProducts',array('parent:IN' => array(4,5,6)));

                  Template snippet
                  [[relatedProducts? &input=`[[*relatedProducts]]` &tpl=`relatedProductsTpl`]]

                  relatedProductTpl chunk
                  <div class="productSliderItem" style="background: url('[[+productBackgroundImage]]') no-repeat; background-size:auto 100%;">
                      <a href="[[~[[+id]]]]" title="[[+pagetitle]]">
                          <div class="shake shake-slow">
                              <img src="[[+productPack]]" />
                          <div class="productSliderTitle">

                  • Hi,
                    I have the same challenge as Cotton.
                    How can I show several parents in the listProducts snippet?

                    Was this question ever answered? If so, I really would like to know.

                    Thanks in advance.
                    • I use migxLoopCollection for lists like that and the @CHUNK - binding

                      @CHUNK inputoptionsProducts

                      in that chunk 'inputoptionsProducts':



                        you can buy me a beer, if you like MIGX
