I have an entity reference field to a content type blog. I referenced a specific blog, but when I render that field in twig using {{ content.field_blog }}. I want to get the autor name and time when that blog was created - not the blog's name by default. Field is in paragraph. I would like to do this using twig, so without any preprocesses.

How can I do that?

  • View mode of the referenced entity?

You should be able to get the author like this:

{{ paragraph.field_blog.entity.Owner.name.value }}

and the creation:

{{ paragraph.field_blog.entity.createdtime|format_date('medium') }}
  • I tried that, it's not rendering anything :/ On createdtime it throws exception "the timestamp must be numeric"...

  • Try paragraph instead of content
