Pages, sub-pages and ordering

Pages, sub-pages and ordering

Hi there

I've decided to use PowerCMS on a site I've just finished so the client can handle all the content from now on. Unless I'm mistaken, and I've trawled the forums and documentation, it seems to be missing some fundamental features.

Looking at the data, there are these two fields in the pcms2_contents table: ContentPageSetOrder and ParentID.

These look like they allow the pages (content created from a template) to be custom ordered and allow nesting of pages, ie. page, sub-page, sub-page, etc.

This functionality is vital in most websites. I want the site owner to be able to add new pages and place them beneath other pages to allow for categories. I also want them to be able to choose the order in which they appear in the nav menu.

As the database has this information, am I missing something as to how to make use of this? The admin area doesn't seem to allow either of these features and it would mean this solution won't work for the site I've planned it for.

Your advice would be very much appreciated.

All the best

on the design extender support page:

see the "Create new pages from PowerCMS templates" under the video tab for details on using page templates.

Power CMS Does support re ordering of the content pages, you would need to edit the database table directly to change the order.

More help please

I am also looking for the same thing. Is it possible to get more help than the above?

Unfortunately I had to abort using this product because of that missing feature. It's a shame as it was easy to set up and I could see it being useful for a number of projects but not being able to arrange the navigation order it was seriously flawed.

Hopefully WA will add this feature to a future update.

Go on WA, put this high on your wish list :-)
