    Multiple items in a column

    Hi,

    Will it be possible to insert more than one item in a column? The reason for asking is that building at site that can have tabs with the some elements that the rest of the site uses, and tab1 could be a banner element and a text element, tab2 could be a text element and a download element etc.. I'm triyng not to have too many elements and go for flexibility instead.. ;)

    (the tab title and other settings are set in the row configuration)

    Hey Ulrich. Sorry it took a few days to get back to you.

    I would need to see what the possible end result would be to comment on this fully. However tabbed content that was in one area we would probably either put a nested content inside the item in the area. Or if you really wanted you can have Bento in Bento.

    Maybe upload an example of the final frontend? This would help us make a suggestion.

    Btw.. the front end is https://www.medicopack.com/vials/polypropylen-pp ... essentially i want it to be possible for the editor to make tabs out of any content.. and not to be limited to have only one element per tab - that's why i would like to be able to put more than one element in a column.. also to be able to combine ie. a header element, a gallery element and a text element and set a background color using the settings .. of course i could set that color for each element, but.. ;) I love keeping things simple but flexible for the editors.. ;)

    Hi Peter,

    Here is another reason for wanting to insert multiple items in a column..

    The red lines are a row with two columns.. the orange lines are items.. yes, i could do an item the both video and description, but i would prefer to have it as two seperate items.. so the editor on another page could choose a video item an combine it with another element... ;)

    Hey Ulrich. Bento is not really designed to work this way, but there are work arounds to achieve this sort of thing.

    1. Create a block item that has a nested content property.
    2. Create a block that also contains another Bento stack for doing flexible content within a block

    In some cases Bento might not be the ideal solution for these sort of things. Bento is more a 1 item per layout area tool. This is basically why it is called Bento after the Japanese bento boxes that have compartments that contained one type of sashimi.

    Its a slightly different way of thinking compared to the standard Umbraco Grid and in some cases the old Umbraco Grid might still be the best way to approach your issue.
