Add-On Type(s)



Run SQL and get the results returned as a |-separated list of entry_ids which you can use as a parameter in another tag (ie. the {exp:channel:entries} tag).

AB Entry IDs works like the {exp:query} module where you would give it an SQL query and get a result. The difference is that instead of looping the results AB Entry IDs will return a single variable: {ab_entry_ids}. This variable contains a |-separated list of entry_ids and can be used as a parameter in other tags (ie. the {exp:channel:entries} tag.

It will usually be more efficient than using {exp:query} in conjunction with {exp:channel:entries} - as only two queries will be run, instead of one query + one query for each loop iteration. 

I built this addon to enable users of AB Pagination to use it with custom sql queries.
