PageTable - Possibility to choose dynamically the parent for pages

Recommended Posts

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
> template_one
> template_two
> template_three
Select a parent for items
> parent_template

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?

      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 want to add a dependent SELECT field on my template page that lists pages from a parent "sub-page" in the current parent node.
      On /product1/page I have the field "photo" which is a SELECT field.
      I want the SELECT to list pages from /ROOTPARENT/photos.
      The idea is that I can reuse the same photo in many places - but only need to keep it update it once under /product1/photos.
      My page structure looks like so:
      /product1/page /product1/photos/photo3 (template=photos) /product2/photos/photo9 I have tried adding these Selector Strings on the Field (Setup -> Fields -> PHOTO -> Input tab -> Selectable Pages field group -> Selector String):
      parent=/product1/page, template=photos, sort=name WORKS (but only on children of current product). parent=page.rootParent ... parent=$page.rootParent ... parent=$page.rootParent parent=$parent ... parent=$parent1 When using a SELECT Input Field Type, the editing pages gives the fatal error "Unrecognized operator: $". parent=parent ... parent=. Returns an empty list How might I find child pages from the current "/product1/photos/ page"?
      Your inputs are appreciated. Thanks.

      So I ran into a very strange issue today. I have a template with a pagetable and I went to add an item to it, when I went to select an image (for an image field) the page instantly threw up an error
      "ProcessPageSearchLive: No search specified"
      The page's content also switched to the image attached. This all worked perfectly last week (local mamp box). Has anyone experienced this before, and how did you solve it?
