Content Twig functions

Content rendering

ez_render()

ez_render() renders the indicated Content item.

It uses the embed view by default, but you can pass a different view as an argument.

You can provide ez_render() with either a Content item or a Location object.

Tip

Depending on whether you pass a Content item or a Location object, the helper automatically selects and uses one of internal Twig functions: ez_render_content() or ez_render_location().

Argument Type Description
content
or
location
eZ\Publish\API\Repository\Values\Content\Content
or
eZ\Publish\API\Repository\Values\Content\Location
Content item or its Location.
method string (optional) Rendering method. One of: direct, inline, esi, ssi.
viewType string (optional) View type.

Rendering methods

You can pass one of the following rendering methods to ez_render():

  • direct - (default) renders the Content item without using a request
  • inline - Symfony inline rendering method, sends a request to the server and inserts the response
  • esi - uses the Symfony Edge Side Include mechanism to render the correct tag that is handled by the reverse proxy
  • ssi - uses the Symfony Server Side Include mechanism to render the correct tag that is handled by the web server

Content information

ez_content_name()

or
eZ\Publish\API\Repository\Values\Content\ContentInfo
Content item or its ContentInfo object.
forcedLanguage string (optional) Language to use (for example, fre-FR).
