I am working on my template and have gotten it laid out almost how I want.

I have it print the content with {{ page.content }} but what I need is on another part of the page I want to print out a specific field from that same content.

I tried different combinations of twig tags but none worked for me.

{{ page.content.field_name }}
{{ content.field_name }}
{{ item.field_name }}
{{ field_name }}
and a few others

I tried googling but I didn't find anything.

  • Suggestion: enable twig debug and write {{ dump() }}

Consult this, you will see there is a variable node that is fully loaded node object. so try the following. one of them should work

{{ node.field_name.value }}
{{ node.field_name }}
{{ content.field_name }}

  • Thanks for the continued help | raw gives me the same error and __toString makes the page work but still doesn't print the field Dec 3 '15 at 15:58
  • is your field a single valued or multivalued?

    This works: {{ node.field_name.value }}

If you use Twig Tweak you can just use {{ node.field_name|view }} for anything (taxonomy terms, paragraphs, etc.) and it will render consistently based on whatever field display settings you have for a given field.

See the bottom item of the Twig Tweak Cheat Sheet for an example (and lots of other super-helpful stuff you can do with Twig Tweak).
