templates and scrolling....

Hey Jason

Not sure if this is possible so am here asking you.

Basically, I stuggle with the fact that if you are using a template as a blog or a news section, this can end up being one helluva scrolling page as the tree is not collapsible...

To get round having a blog or news section creating this potential immense scroll in amongst the regular content area, is it technically/feasible to create a 2nd cms installation for just the blog/news section so that it has its own section just for that?

Cheers

Jamie

It's technically posible, but I would not recommend it, this could probably create more problems than it would fix.

you would need to manually install the second CMS instance by copying the CMS files from the users configuration folder under Shared/WebAssist/PowerCMS/CMS

make sure to copy them to a subfolder of your site, then run the install script. you would need to ensure that you use a separate database from the CMS installation.

Thanks for the quick response Jason.... I cant seem find that folder path you mention?

see this page for details on finding the users configuration folder:
common_installation_issues.php


from the configuration folder, go to:
Configuration/Shared/WebAssist/PowerCMS/CMS


again, I don't recommend doing this, though. I see it creating more problems than it fixes. You will not be able to use the Dreamweaver CMS tools for managing the content of the second instance.

thanks Jason... I hear you re not doing. Just want to try to see how it would work etc and its limitations....

Alternatively... is there any way that it would be possible to make the template tree collapsible?

No, there is not a way to make the tree collapsible.
