Calling a content block in a news Summary

Post by joecannes »

Hi all,

I am wondering if this is possible and how it is done, my logic might be wrong.

Let's say for example, I have a custom content block in my template written as below:

Code: Select all

  {content block="archivedYearValue" assign="archivedYearValue"  label="Archived Year Value (YYYY)" oneline="1" wysiwyg="0"} 
and in my WYSIWYG editor, I am calling a news summary template:

Code: Select all

{news summarytemplate="NewsArchivesSummary"}
how do I call the value from "archivedYearValue" from my news summary template? This is my news summary template below:

Code: Select all


{foreach from=$items item=entry}

{assign var="post_year_set_by_user" value=$entry->$archivedYearValue}

{if $post_year == post_year_set_by_user}
<div class="NewsSummaryLink">
I am sure my logic is wrong, just trying to figure it out, any help would be great!

You most likely will have to explain this in more detail as to what it is you are trying to do...
Check ver. CMSMS, PHP, server OS, in System Information page.
