Weird, it’s working for me… could it come from somewhere else? What if you comment out this code, wrapping it in <txp:hide>...</txp:hide>?

Hold on. It may be coming from somewhere else just a sec.

Re: etc_query: all things Textpattern

This (and delete the space in “current category”)?

<txp:etc_query wraptag="ul" class="pull-right breadcrumb" break="li" name="alphalist"
	data='SELECT DISTINCT UPPER(SUBSTRING(Title,1,1)) AS alpha FROM textpattern WHERE Status = 4 AND Section = "books" AND Category2 LIKE ''<txp:variable name="currentcategory" />%'' ORDER BY alpha'
>

Edit: you can also replace <txp:variable name="currentcategory" /> with {?currentcategory} here:

<txp:etc_query wraptag="ul" class="pull-right breadcrumb" break="li" name="alphalist"
	data="SELECT DISTINCT UPPER(SUBSTRING(Title,1,1)) AS alpha FROM textpattern WHERE Status = 4 AND Section = 'books' AND Category2 LIKE '{?currentcategory}%' ORDER BY alpha"

Re: etc_query: all things Textpattern

Still no go on my side.
By just inserting this {?currentcategory}

	data="SELECT DISTINCT UPPER(SUBSTRING(Title,1,1)) AS alpha FROM textpattern WHERE Status = 4 AND Section = 'books' AND Category2 LIKE '{?currentcategory}%' ORDER BY alpha"

The resulting sql call is below and the variable is not parsed, is there another step to that type of variable?

<txp:etc_query wraptag="ul" class="pull-right breadcrumb" break="li" name="alphalist"
	data="SELECT DISTINCT UPPER(SUBSTRING(Title,1,1)) AS alpha FROM textpattern WHERE Status = 4 AND Section = 'books' AND Category2 LIKE '{?currentcategory}%' ORDER BY alpha"

And the other version below still fails silently will no sql call happening at all when I look at page source, and no error (as the error above was from somewhere else and has been fixed)

<txp:etc_query wraptag="ul" class="pull-right breadcrumb" break="li" name="alphalist"
	data='SELECT DISTINCT UPPER(SUBSTRING(Title,1,1)) AS alpha FROM textpattern WHERE Status = 4 AND Section = "books" AND Category2 LIKE ''<txp:variable name="currentcategory" />%'' ORDER BY alpha'

Re: etc_query: all things Textpattern

ok, let’s see step by step:

<txp:variable name="currentcategory" value="drama" />

<txp:etc_query wraptag="ul" class="pull-right breadcrumb" break="li"
	data="SELECT DISTINCT UPPER(SUBSTRING(Title,1,1)) AS alpha FROM textpattern WHERE Status = 4 AND Section = 'books' AND Category2 LIKE '{?currentcategory}%' ORDER BY alpha" />

outputs for me a A-Z list of drama books, can you confirm?

Nope it outputs all categories. But if I type replace ‘{?currentcategory}%’ with ‘drama’ it outputs just an A-Z list of drama books.

Re: etc_query: all things Textpattern

But a line listing of this shows that the value is drama.
<txp:variable name=“currentcategory” value=“drama” />
<txp:variable name=“currentcategory” />

Very weird. Have you set globals="_GET" or something like that? Try with globals="variable", thought it should work by default.

Edit: and could it be that you use some pre 4.0.8 txp version?

I am embarrassed to say I have now idea where to do that. Which means I don’t think I have ever used such a setting unless some plugin has set those.

Testing on MAMP Pro install on OS X if that might mean anything?

Re: etc_query: all things Textpattern

It’s like here

<!-- output alphalist and get articles ids when necessary -->
<txp:etc_query globals="_GET" data='<txp:variable name="alphalist" />'
...

Well, what is the output of just this:

<txp:variable name="currentcategory" value="drama" />
<txp:etc_query data='{?currentcategory}' />
