Ways to Access with Parsley

There are many ways to access the content from a collection. The most common way is when you are working with it's associated template, when you are, content can be accessed like:

  • {{page.title}}
  • {{page.description}}
  • {{page.html}}
  • {{page.image}}
  • {{page.multiple_images}}
  • {{page.date}}
  • {{page.dropdown}}
  • {{page.number}}

Another way is with global access calls, which look this:

  • {{example_data.first().title}}
  • {{example_data.first().description}}
  • {{example_data.first().html}}
  • {{example_data.first().image}}
  • {{example_data.first().multiple_images}}
  • {{example_data.first().date}}
  • {{example_data.first().dropdown}}
  • {{example_data.first().number}}

Collections may be standalone (headless) and/or can be associated to a template with routing for websites (www functionality).
