I opened a new wishlist topic on the PW forum for this and in the meantime I ask to the community looking for a reasonable solution.
Using the PageTable field, is there a way to un-restrict the creation of pages under a given parent template page (or as page children if no parent for items is selected)? That is, is there a way to allow the selection of the parent page dynamically / on the fly during page creation via the PageTable field?
I'm using the PW PageTable field extensively and I think an improvement to it could be made regarding the ability to choose the page parent where the page created via PageTable will reside.
Say you have a PageTable field set like this:
Edit Field: page_table_field > Details >
Select one or more templates for items
Select a parent for items
Actually, you can only create pages under the parent_template page (or as page child if no parent for items is selected).
BTW I am looking for reasons about this limitation.
What about allowing to choose on the fly where the pages created via PageTable will reside? that is, having the possibility to choose dynamically under which parent page to create the pages?
Actually, one could overcome to this by creating multiple appropriately set PageTable fields, one PageTable field per PageTable parent for items, but this is unsustainable (?) when you want to create a lot using PageTable…
By allowing to choose dynamically / on the fly the parent page during page creation via the PageTable field would open up a wider usage of PageTable.
What do you think about?

Is there a way for us to replicate the "http://mydomain.com/processwire/page/edit/?id=xxx" and change the template to match my site template?
I'm terribly happy with the admin / backend page edit. It covers literaly everything I want to empower my non super admin user in updating pages such as validation, repeater management, file upload.
I wish not to allow the users to see the backend for both security and aesthetic reasons.
Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.
I have a question regarding rendering of template files that are in a subfolder of the template folder.
How would I for example render these PageTable items, when their template files are inside templates/blocks/:
<div class="grid"> <?php foreach($page->grid_ext as $item): ?> <div id="pteg_<?= $item->id ?>"> <?php echo $item->render(); ?> </div> <?php endforeach; ?> </div> I tried this, but get an error:
<?php echo $item->render(wire('config')->paths->templates . '/blocks/'); ?>
