Allowing a client to add new pages? Does it also link new pages in a menu?

Allowing a client to add new pages? Does it also link new pages in a menu?

Reading the features list of CMS Builder:

•Template pages
◦Create PowerCMS templates that an Admin can create dynamic pages based on – giving your client the power to add new pages to their site without creating new PHP files.

Sorry if this is obvious, if I create a php template page with the editable regions already included which allows a client to add new pages to the site then how does the client create new menu items to link the new pages???

Having them create their own pages is great but then a developer is still required to setup the menu links to them??

You can create a recordset that will return all of the pages and use that to have the menu update automatically. The recordset query would look something like:

SELECT C2.ContentGroup, C2.ContentPageSetOrder FROM pcms2_contents AS C1 LEFT OUTER JOIN pcms2_contents AS C2 ON C2.ContentPagesetParentID = C1.ContentID WHERE C1.ContentGroup = '[YourTemplateGroup]' AND C2.ContentPageSetOrder IS NOT NULL GROUP BY C2.ContentPageSetOrder ORDER BY C2.ContentPageSetOrder DESC

where would this recordset be entered?

You would create the recordset on the page where you want to show the powerCMS template pages created. Then you can loop through it to show each page that is created.

Video/PDF

This is a function that I would like to be able to set up as well, but can't really understand how to get this set up. I think it would be great if WA could supply a video or pdf with a how-to for us that this is not obvious to, I think this a feature most users wants to be able to use ;)

Cheers

Hey guys

Have started having a 'play' with setting up a navigation that a client is able to add to and update themselves.

So far so good, but as you can see here menu/ the link itself is only showing the most recent addition to the template set... when you click on any of them the content is correct, but the navigation then shows the same for all of them again ....

Any helps, as always, gratefully received

Thanks

Jamie
