Subscription Queries

You can fetch subscriptions in your templates or PHP code using subscription queries.

{# Create a new subscription query #}
{% set mySubscriptionQuery = craft.subscriptions() %}

Once you’ve created a subscription query, you can set parameters on it to narrow down the results, and then execute it (opens new window) by calling .all(). An array of Subscription (opens new window) objects will be returned.

See Element Queries (opens new window) in the Craft docs to learn about how element queries work.

# Example

We can display all of the current user’s subscriptions by doing the following:

  1. Create a subscription query with craft.subscriptions().
  2. Set the user parameter on it.
  3. Fetch the subscriptions with .all().
  4. Loop through the subscriptions using a for (opens new window) tag to output their HTML.
{# Make sure someone is logged in #}
{% requireLogin %}

{# Create a subscription query with the 'user' parameter #}
{% set mySubscriptionQuery = craft.subscriptions()
    .user(currentUser) %}

{# Fetch the subscriptions #}
{% set subscriptions = mySubscriptionQuery.all() %}

{# Display the subscriptions #}
{% for subscription in subscriptions %}
    <article>
        <h1><a href="{{ subscription.url }}">{{ subscription.title }}</a></h1>
        {{ subscription.summary }}
        <a href="{{ subscription.url }}">Learn more</a>
    </article>
{% endfor %}
