Ticket: Parent Block Variables don’t work in conditionals

Status Resolved

EE Version 5.2.4

Hello, it’s entirely possible that this is intended behavior, but it wasn’t clear one way or another in the docs here:

The issue we’re seeing is with using the “Block Variables” as described toward the bottom of that page.

We have an atom defined on the parent block called block_var_theme. This is a simple radio option that outputs a string. We can output the variable fine in the child block with {block_var_theme} on our template, however, doing a conditional doesn’t work.

Example: {if block_var_theme == 'white'}.

It would be great if this worked for conditionals, but if that’s possible, then probably some updates need to be made to the documentation.

Did you try

{if '{block_var_theme}' == 'white'}.

AH! That version works.


Would recommend a note about that in the docs then 😊
