  • What about objects, nodes ?

    It doesn't work with nodes.
    Before :
    <ul>
    {foreach $all_related_albums as $related_album}
            <li>{$related_album.main_node.node_id}</li>
    {/foreach}
    </ul>
     
    {def $unique_related_albums=$all_related_albums|unique()}
     
    After :
    <ul>
    {foreach $unique_related_albums as $related_album}
            <li>{$related_album.main_node.node_id}</li>
    {/foreach}
    </ul>
    


    produces the following output :
    Before :
    7360
    7360
    7360
    7360
    7360
    4166
     
    After :
    7360
    

    You have to build an intermediate array with node id's, then use unique, then re-fetch all nodes...
