Repeating Group Not Showing Within Group

I’m using the new responsive engine to try create pages. I understand it’s new and probably has some bugs to it. If this is one of them, please let me know. If there’s another post on the forum for this topic, please let me know.

The problem I’m having is I have a group container that’s holding a repeating group. The container is controlling the width of the content as I have three columns spanning across the page (see image below). The container is set to column as I want to stack elements on top of each other inside the container. I’m using percentages to define width.

I can drop an elements into the container and it will show on the preview. However, as soon as I throw in a repeating group into the container, it does not show. I have it set what kind of content it is, so that shouldn’t be a problem. Even when I do plain text in the repeating group, it doesn’t show that either.

Why is not showing? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As a follow up, I know there are 6 issues showing on the screenshot. However, those are on other pages (some things I don’t have in the database yet). I have already checked this. I don’t want anyone to waste time thinking that may be a problem.

Hi there, @bryan.beneker… you say you have a type of content set for the repeating group, but does the repeating group have a data source? If it doesn’t have a data source and it doesn’t have any elements in it that show something from the data source, then the repeating group isn’t going to show anything. The fact that the element you have in the group shows “edit me” leads me to believe you either haven’t set a data source or you have set one and you just need to configure that element to show some dynamic data from the data source.

Best…

Hi mikeloc, Thank you for the response. I was able to get things to show. The repeating group had the type of content filled in, but no data source. However, I’m still wondering why plain text with no data source wouldn’t work? For example, if I want to display a label describing data that’s coming through. That should show without a data source, right? I guess that’s what I was mostly confused about.

Nope. You have to have a valid data source in order for anything (including something like a static label) to show up in a repeating group.
