startnumberThe 1-based index of the first entity that was (or would have been) dynamically fetched from the database
pagenumberThe 1-based index of the first "page" of content that could have been fetched dynamically from the database - as determined by the start and limit properties
total_countnumberThe total number of content in the database that matched the provided filter parameters when fetching the list of fetched content
total_pagesnumberThe total number of "pages" of results that matched the provided filter parameters when fetching the list of fetched content - as determined by the total_count and limit properties
outputhtmlThe default output that the content will produce when it is output directly to the template - using the "output_in_list" property of each entity in the items list

Methods

{% content %}

Fetch a list of content.

{% content
[var|set|assign] new_variable_name
Specify a variable name in order to save the results to a variable. If not specified the results will be output to the template instead. The variable will be saved using the "var" behavior unless "set" or "assign" are specified.
output_to_template
If included, the results will be output directly to the template.
=
prepend:entity|content|guid
Prepend the specified content before the fetched results. All prepended input will be returned in the same order that it is input.
append:entity|content|guid
Append the specified content after the fetched results. All appended input will be returned in the same order that it is input.
exclude:entity|content|guid
Prevent the specified content from being included in the fetched results. Has no affect on prepended and appended content
exclude_prepended:true
Specifically exclude all prepended content from the fetched results. If "unique:true" is specified this is the default behavior, although you may also specify "exclude_prepended:false" to allow any prepended items to be fetched along with other results anyway.
exclude_appended:true
Specifically exclude all appended content from the fetched results. This is false by default - even if "unique:true" is specified - so that results are returned in the proper order.
unique:true
If set to true, each of the resulting lists (prepended, fetched, appended, and items) will be unique, although there may be duplicates between the prepended, fetched, and appended lists. The "items" list will include objects in the order in which they appear - with prepended items first, then fetched items, then appended items.
max_size:25
If specified, then the "items" list will only include up to the specified number of content. The "limit" may be automatically lowered to only fetch the maximum number of content that will be included in "items" following prepended items. Note that this may also impact both the "page and "total_pages" values. In order to use pagination with a list loaded using "max_size" use "start" instead of "page" and "limit".
filter:string
Only return content that match the given string filter
has_url:boolean
Filter results to only return content for which has_url exactly matches the specified value.
global_type_id:string
Filter results to return content of that match the specified value.
template:template|templates|guid|string
Only return content with one of these templates
include_in_search:boolean
Filter results to only return content for which include_in_search exactly matches the specified value.
site_domain_guid:guid
Filter results to only return content for which site_domain_guid exactly matches the specified value.
ssl_mode:string
Filter results to only return content for which ssl_mode exactly matches the specified value.
tag:tag|tags|guid|string
Only return content with one of these tags
author:author|authors|guid|string
Only return content with one of these authors
folder:folder|folders|guid|string
Only return content with one of these folders
date_created_start:datetime
Filter results to return content for which date_created is greater than or equal to date_created_start.
date_created_end:datetime
Filter results to return content for which date_created is less than or equal to date_created_end.
start:1
Set the 1-based index of the first entity to fetch.
page:1
Automatically calculate the first entity to fetch based on both of the "limit" and the 1-based "page" value. Ignored if "start" is set.
limit:25
Defines the maximum number of content to be fetched. If not included, this will default to 10. Note that if "max_size" is specified then "limit" may be automatically lowered even if specified.
sort_by:"date_created"
Specify which field to sort the fetched results by. Has no affect on prepended or appended content.
By default results will be sorted by relevance if there is a filter string and date_created (the date the item was first published) desc (newest first) if not.
Other Options include:
  • Name
  • Title
  • URL
  • BrowserTitle
  • relevance (based on which field matches the given filter and where in the field the match is found. When sorting by relevance sort_direction is irrelevant)
  • date_created (Equivalent to the date you first published this item. Unpublishing and republishing the item resets date_created to the current date)
  • random (Using random sorting prevents fast caching of the page).
sort_direction:"desc"
Specify whether the fetched results should be sorted in asc (ascending) or desc (descending) order.
%}

If you do not include any filters or inputs other than prepended items, appended items, or max_size, then no additional items will be fetched. If you wish to fetch all items you must include at least one additional input (ie: "start:1")
