    Bootstrap Sections........

    Hi all,

    I've got a requirement in the Umbraco back office to be able CMS editors to create 'Sections' in a specified content Node so for example:

    The editor creates the Home page and inside this page there is ability for the editor to add a section to the page and then inside this section they can add a series of 'boxes' (with each box having it's own RTE).

    So, basically a section is a Bootstrap Container/Row and then each box in the section is 3 column or 4 column depending on how many boxes they've inserted.

    To further complicate it they need to be able to insert more than 1 section on any given page!

    I was looking to see if there was a package that for this (I know that there is!) but I can't seem to find anything in Umbraco.

    Doe's anyone know if such a plugin exists?

    Thanks, C

    I've not tried it but you should be able to create some nested doc types (and the associated data type): Section which contains nested doc type: Content. Then add this to your page doc type.

    It's nested within nested. To render it try this:

    Hope that helps.

    Oh - and I should have noted Nested Content is now core as of v7.7 so nothing to install.

    Alternatively, you could look at using the Grid for something like this as well. Create 2 row layouts, one with 3 columns and one with 4. Each of the columns only allows RTE's.

    With the release of 7.7.4 (I think it was) you can now limit the number of control instances that are added to a cell so you can only allow a single RTE in each defined cell.

    Both Nested Content and the Grid could lead quite nicely to this?

    I agree with Nik, your problem maybe solved by the built in grid editor type?

    Sorry gents Umbraco told me that this post hadn't been created (!) I got round the issue by using nested content blocks.

    Thanks, C
