I have a “Work” parent page, and then “Projects” as children. In each project I can add a “Quote.” In the parent Work page I load in a random Quote pulled from all the published quote blocks.
Is there a way for me to do the same thing on another page entirely? The way I’m doing it now only works on the direct parent:
<?php foreach ($page->children()->children()->shuffle()->filterBy('quoteToggle', 'true', ',' )->limit(1) as $featuredQuote): ?>
I want to be on another page entirely and do the same thing. “Load in a random quote from any of the published quote blocks in project pages.”
So the quotes are children of a project?
You can fetch any page from anywhere using the
page() helper. It expects the path to the page as argument.
page('work')->grandchildren()->shuffle()->filterBy('quoteToggle', 'true', ',' )->limit(1)
From the docs (https://getkirby.com/docs/reference/objects/page):
$page variable always refers to the current page. However, you can also define a
$page object by calling a specific page using the
$page = page('somepage');
It’s been over a year since you helped me last, and I can confidently say my love for you has only increased. Good grief I had no idea you could reference a page by name, and I also appreciate you slipping in the “grandchildren” goodness, which I also had no idea existed.
