I've created a paragraph type called "text_icon_boxes". It has 19 fields. I've added this paragraph type to one of my content types.

What I'd like to do is customise the display of this paragraph type. I've created a twig template paragraph--text-icon-boxes.html.twig, but the fields display "-1", etc. How do I access the paragraph fields in this twig template?

Here's a small snippet:

<div class="icon-box-left">
  <h2>{{ content.title }}</h2>
  <p>{{ content.text }}</p>

The twig template is the right one. Twig template suggestions:

   x paragraph--text-icon-boxes--default.html.twig
   * paragraph--text-icon-boxes.html.twig
   * paragraph--default.html.twig
   * paragraph.html.twig

    First enable twig debugging to see what template suggestions exist in your HTML source. Be sure to clear caches after adding new files so they are picked up by the application. drupal.org/node/2598914

  • I've updated the question with the twig debugging info. Seems like I got the right name. The field__item is empty though. If I remove the twig file, the content does show up.

  • In your theme are you using 'hook_theme_suggestions_HOOK_alter(array &$suggestions, array $variables)' to set your new template as the first suggestion?

  • No, I'm not. Trying the first suggestion gives no result either.

  • Could you show the manage fields tab? it seems like the fields are not called correctly, since drupal alwyas adds field_ at the start of fields.

The field variables are not right - they need to correlate to the field name.


{{ content.field_icon_1 }}

{{ content.field_icon_1_title }}

These are the render arrays you are looking for. {{ content.text }} does not exist.

Also, keep in mind that these render arrays are rendering those fields - you may want to place the markup in those field specific templates.
