    Both list view and child nodes

    Hello everybody

    Is there a way to enable both list view and child nodes?

    It must be so selected child nodetypes will be listed in the list view and the remaining as sub nodes.

    It would be really smart, because I often build a page with sections/modules, but the page can still have child pages (with sections/modules).

    Is it someway possible to do this?

    Best regards Benjamin Ravn

    Hi Benjamin

    Currently that scenario is not possible...

    But I'm thinking...why do you place modules in your content tree? Sounds like mixing and matching to me...so just curious about your process and want to learn a bit more if you don't mind sharing a bit :)

    Cheers, Jan

    Hi Jan

    Thank you for your quick answer.

    To make it a lot easier for my customers, I don't just give them a richtext editor to edit the content on a page. Insted I build custom sections such as simple sections with text, text and image, gallery to more advanced sections with price tables and so on. It makes it easier for them to maintain the content.

    Without list view the sections will be mixed up with sub pages, and if I enable list view, the subpages will be listed in the list view which is even more confusing.

    I hope you can see the advantage of doing both.

    Hi Benjamin

    Yeah a plain richtext editor sucks indeed since it's very error prone.

    So sections are pages that can be rendered? Otherwise it might be better to make a central content repository where the different sections can be picked using a MNTP? To me it sounds like the tree is a bit cluttered if it's a mix of content pages and content elements.

    Such a feature sounds pretty logical and useful to me. There should be a checkbox "Enable list view" next to each document type at "Allowed child nodetypes".

    The page is build with and rendered by sections, but it wouldn't make sense with a central section repository.

    Petr - I'm happy you agree.

    I can't see why it's either list view or child nodes - both should be possible at the same time.

    Hi guys

    Well maybe it could make sense to have the feature.

    Who is going to file a feature request for this at the issue tracker? :)

    Hi Benjamin

    But everyone can create an issue on the issue tracker - It's not that I don't want to but it would be awesome if more people would contribute suggesting features or reporting bugs on the issue tracker since it's the way to try and influence the core team around Umbraco make improvements etc.

    I'd be happy to vote it up once created ;-)
