Tag Code Being Output

Support Request

Hi Phil,

I am having a problem with a tag being output on screen from the REST module and I was hoping you could help me sort out the cause.

Here’s my template code:

{exp:rest url="http://media.lpb.org/pbcore/api/GetAssetDetails.ashx" verb="get" format="xml" param:asset_identifier="{segment_3}" parse="inward"}

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<
html>
<
head>
<
meta charset="utf-8">
<
title>
{if ErrorMessage}
 Error 
{if
:else}
 {if IsPublic 
== "False" AND logged_out}
  Login Required 
 {if
:else}
   {exp
:switchee variable "{AssetType}" parse="inward"}

   {case value
="Segment"}
    {segmentTitle}
   {
/case}

   {case value
="Episode"}
    {seriesTitle} {episodeTitle} 
   {
/case}
   
   {case value
="Program"}
    {programTitle}
   {
/case}
   
   {case value
="Element"}
    {rawFootageTitle}{if seriesTitle} 
{seriesTitle}{/if} 
   {
/case}
   
   {case value
="Clip"}
    {clipTitle}{if seriesTitle} 
{seriesTitle}{/if} 
   {
/case}
   
   {case value
="Project"}
    {projectTitle} 
   {

   {case value

    {seriesTitle}

to view the rendered template go here: http://ldma.lpb.org/video/asset-detail/LSWI-3201-Guard

To view the XML data REST is pulling, go here: http://www.odysseydesignstudio.com/ldmatest/LSWI-3201-Guard


I’m not sure why, but I’m seeing the {Collection} tag getting output when it definitely shouldn’t be. What is strange is it doesn’t render if I remove the parse inward parameter from the Rest tag, but if I remove that then the Switchee tags don’t parse at all.

Any insight you could give on how to solve this would be helpful. I suppose I could remove the Switchee code and the parse tag and do everything with regular conditionals, but I was hoping to find a way to use Switchee without removing it. I also tried some of the other looping tags from the xml like the {Contributors} loop and it worked fine with no strange tag output.

Thanks,

Brian

Does anyone have any idea as to what might be the cause of this issue?
