change number of available site pages displayed

We are building a site which could end up with over 100 pages - currently all at the same level below root for the reason given below - and the client needs to access these to maintain content. The client has poor PC skills beyond basic PC use and typing and may not be able to find particular pages to edit easily using the "search" bar.

The basic PowerCMS admin interface shows just 6 big blue tabs with different pages - e.g. "aboutus.php". How can I list all the available pages - and is there a smart way to produce a page listing that looks like the standard microsoft interface when folders are listed and then expand them to show their content. This would be a very useful feature for larger sites as the pages could then be ordered at different levels within the site to relate precisely to the main menu bar on the index page. The client could understand this.

The site we are building is for the British Legion - i.e. serving and retired folk from the armed services at www.bedwynlegion.org.uk

On the admin index page, the left side will show the last five actions you have performed, the main content will show all of the pages you have added.

If it is not showing all of the pages in the main content area of the index page, there is likely some content in the database that is causing the list not to render correctly.

What browser are you using?

If there is content that is causing the list not to render correctly, you will need to go into the database and remove it.


As for the Explorer style listing, I will add a feature request.

IE 7/8 not displaying all site pages in CMS

Hi Jason,

Mozilla correctly displays all the pages but IE 8 will not (ie upgraded since last post!). The source runs to 2500 plus lines so is this a stack overflow problem or is IE failing to render because of javascript not reading all the code in nested <DIVS>? I have checked the database tables and these all appear to be fine - no strange contents at all.

IE7/8 not displaying all site pages in CMS

Hi Eric,

Just for info -there is a lot of stuff on the web re IE8 not displaying pages properly but I will follow this up here via the ticket you kindly raised.

There is another issue which the authors of PowerCMS may need to look at anyway. The page I wanted to load had 2500 lines of code but this covered fewer than 30 pages. I had hoped to include a full calendar - which creates 365 linked potential pages from 12 others if the calendar for a given month pops up the selected day's content in an new page. The code would run to many thousands of lines if the entire database stack was listed in the home admin page - and this is just for starters. I would suggest V2.0 of PowerCMS lists the page names but then opens a new edit listing page when a specific page is selected containing just the edit regions on that page and no others.

I have logged this as a feature request for a future version of PowerCMS for you. I'm sure that other users who need to make use of larger page sets would also benefit from this. As for the ticket please make sure to update that from your support history so we can continue looking into this with you.
