Naming Fields as Liquid Variables can give incorrect results when referenced.

Userlevel 5

Last tested: Jul 9, 2019

If you name a field with the same name as a liquid variable reference such as,


dimension: value {}


Then reference the liquid variable {{ value }} somewhere like the html parameter of another field,


html: {% if value == "&#8377" %} ₹ {% else %} {{value}} {% endif %};;


Liquid will try to pull through the dimension named value rather than the field {{ value }}. This will cause incorrect grouping to occur and probably some odd results.
