Suppose that in a Twig template, I want to print the first value of a multi-value field, then something else, and finally all other values of the same field. Is there a way to do that?

I know how to get the first value of the field, but I don't know how to exclude that first value from the place where I'm printing all other values.

This is what I tried, but doesn't work:

{# print first field value #}
{{ content.field_foo.0 }}
{# print something else #}
<hr>
{# print remaining field values #}
{{ content.field_foo|without(0) }}

Alternatives for the last line that didn't work either:

{{ content.field_foo|without('0') }}
{{ content.field_foo|without('field_foo.0') }}

Looking at the code in twig_without(), I would expect {{ content.field_foo|without(0) }} to work, but instead the entire field disappears.

  • Try to use slice filter. Like this: {% set rows = rows|slice(1) %}. So basically just create new variable and remove one element from previous array – Артем Ильин Feb 5 at 12:20

In field preprocessing this while loop which fills the field items doesn't get started if the first delta is removed:

  $delta = 0;
  while (!empty($element[$delta])) {
    $variables['items'][$delta]['content'] = $element[$delta];
    $delta++;
  }

So if you bypass the field template to print the 0 delta do the same with the other deltas:

{# print first field value #}
{{ content.field_foo.0 }}
{# print something else #}
<hr>
{# print remaining field values #}
{% for key, item in content.field_foo if key > 0  %}
  {{ item }}
{% endfor %}
  • Thank you, and extra kudos for figuring out where exactly field preprocessing says "no" ;-) It must be noted that there is a downside to this solution: you lose the field wrapping div in the process. (I tried an alternative method to avoid that: {% set remaining_foo = content.field_foo|merge({0: []}) %} {{ remaining_foo }} but that didn't work.) – marcvangend Feb 6 at 17:45
