    List View Accessing Grandchildren

    I have a listview which is displaying blog posts. Works great. However, the blog posts have children which are the comments to each post. Is there no way to view these if the grandparent is set to a list view? Seems like a big oversight, but maybe I'm missing something.

    Structure:

    -- Blog (List view set here)

    ----- Blog Post  (Can view these in list view)

    -------- Comment   (Can not get to these)

    Hi Justin

    I think it's an oversight and that you should file an issue at http://issues.umbraco.org/issues

    A member responded to the Issue Tracker bug. Looks like you can accomplish this by setting the List View property to true on the child (blog post) doctype in order to view the grandchildren. This worked!

    Perhaps it should be made more obvious then? :)

    But glad to hear you figured it out.

    One thing to note is that list-view children may not show in pickers correctly. So, given your scenario if you have a multinode picker on your blog post, where you pick say 'hot comments', then the picker will not list comments (if a blog post is also a list-view) , rather you must search for them :-(
