Retrieve Table of Contents on Article page

Postby bgarnicnig » Mon May 13, 2013 4:01 pm

I'm trying to render the relevant Table of Contents on the article page (article.tpl), in an abbreviated version. I was wondering if any of you could help me find which variables/objects I could call to retrieve an array/object containing the ToC, similar to what happens in

Code: Select all
{foreach name=sections from=$publishedArticles item=section key=sectionId}

in templates/issue/issue.tpl

simply including
Code: Select all
{include file="issue/issue.tpl"}
doesnt seem to do the trick...

Hi Bernhard,

The problem is that the variables you're referencing in Smarty haven't been assigned by the PHP code that supports that template. The $publishedArticles variable is assigned for use in the issue template in pages/issue/IssueHandler.inc.php; look at the code surrounding the line:
Code: Select all
$templateMgr->assign_by_ref('publishedArticles', $publishedArticles);
To get access to $publishedArticles in the article view, you'll have to expose that variable in the PHP code prepping the article template, which will be in pages/article/ArticleHandler.inc.php.
