relatedRecordLookupFunctions plugin implementation issue

Hi All,

I’m using the relatedRecordLookupFunctions plugin in a list page and I could use some help

I have a multi record section called 'musicians_listings' that contains images, bios and contact info for a number of musicians, and another multi record section called 'listen_live' to list information about various live concerts. There's a 'is_this_a_jojs_presents_event' check box in each record since only jojs presents' events will have featured musicians.

There’s a pillbox list field in the 'listen_live' section that pulls featured musician names from the 'musicians_listings' section.

Using the relatedRecordLookupFunctions plugin I’m able to display the musician’s information for each 'jojs presents' concert on the detail page for that concert.

I’m having a problem with using this approach to list the correct musician information on a concert list page.

I can’t seem to figure out how to pull the related musician information (based on pillbox entries) from anything but the first record.

Even if there are multiple records that meet the date criteria, and that have the ‘is_this_a_jojs_presents_event’ check box checked, even if there are different musicians in the pillbox field for each record, only the musicians from the first record in the list are retrieved and are repeated multiple times.

Below is the active code that I have so far.

The issue is probably something obvious (just not to me.

Any Thoughts?

Thanks,and best for the New Year!

Sure, Hans,

What do you suggest?

I've also uploaded the related records plugin to the original post (sorry, forgot to do that when I first posted).
