Just curious what the difference is compared to Nested Content except for the UI changes ?
Also curious about this!
In a nutshell, StackedContent differs in that the content is edited in the modal (similar experience to DocTypeGridEditor) and offers a preview feature.
If you're happy using NestedContent, that's great, carry on with it. We weren't 100% happy with using inline editing for all use-cases, so we've added another option to our toolkits.
For us NC was just about managing lists of structured data and wasn't really meant for layout (think lists of team members, or company offices rather than full on page layouts).
SC is designed to be somewhere inbetween the grid and nested content and is geared to fit that gap where users have been using NC for content blocks. Using SC you get block previewing in the back office, and you can have more complex data structures as the modal supports tabs.
Ultimately you could do the same thing with NC, but SC just gives you more of a visual view of that data,
For us its NC for lists, SC for simple stacked content blocks, the Grid for full control page layouts.
Hope that helps.
PS And of course NC plays nicely with SC so for example you could have a "carousel" content block in SC that has a NC "caoursel items" property.
As Lee has put it before, it's about having a tool set for different purposes, rather than seeing NC as a "one size fits all".
Is there any way SC and NC could be extended to allow for re-usable (pre-populated) property data? A way of picking pre-filled nodes based on the chosen doctype? It's a problem in Umbraco which still has to be solved with a repository in the node tree linked via the MNTP.
Would the new "Content Templates" functionality in the latest 7.7.6 do that for you?
Just a thought.
@Craig100 in short no because Content Templates only cover entire page and not a composition upon which you would largely base your NC / SC items. So i'm looking for the ability to have reusable fragments.
