Hi all

I could still do with a bit of help on this as I am wondering if what I am trying to do is possible at all now!

I thought as I was having no luck traversing the children of the teaserTarget node I would try getting a parent node. ie.

// get the Target Node for this teaser
      teaserTargetNode = ${q(node).property('teaserTargetNode')}
// now get the parent
teaserTargetNodeParent = ${q(teaserTargetNode).parents().get(0)}

in fluid I do a simple dump of the above ie. {teaserTargetNode} & {teaserTargetNodeParent}
{teaserTargetNode} i get :
Node /sites/rerootsitecom/what-we-do/for-you/main/node52e907b4a56fe[Reroot.RerootSiteCom:Section]
{teaserTargetNodeParent} is null .

So clealry I can't traverse this nodes parents or children. Is this expected behaviour or a bug? From my limited understanding it would seem a useful 
feature to have. All help welcome please :)

Best wishes
