Hey all,
i ran across a problem. here is my situation.
On the homepage im displaying 5 children pages.
now what i want is that the title of these children pages will redirect to another page on the site.
for example:
<a href="$link">$Title</a> <!-- This will redirect to another page on the site-->
$content <!-- this is the content of the active page atm-->

does this make any sense??
thanks!

I'm a little confused.

You just want to link to each child page? Why can't you just put that code in your control in your template?

How are you currently listing the 5 child pages? Are you using a custom php function like in the tutorials, or are you using a regular <% control Children %>?

Ill try to make it a bit more clear.
My homepage contains a <%control childrenof(page) %> which has 5 children. These 5 children are listed . What i want is that each $title of these 5 children will be a link, which will point to another 5 children of another sibling.

Home
page 1
child 1 of page 1
child 2 of page 1
child 3 of page 1
page 2
child 1 of page 2
child 2 of page 2
child 3 of page 2

So basically i want the $title of "child of page 1" to link to "child 1 of page 2", "child 2 of page 2" linking with "child 2 of page 2" etc.

Is it more clear now??

<ul>
<% control Children %>
<li><a href="$Link">$Title</a></li>
<% end_control %>
</ul>

hi SImoX. the problem with that code is that it controls the children of page 1.

i know its a bit complicated so let me try again.
page home shows the items of page 1 <%control childrenof(page1) %>
now what i want is that the title of the posts that get listed from the children of page1 become the links to the children of another page on the site, page2.

clear?? :/

do you have very many posts listed with <%control childrenof(page1) %> ???
you could use

<ul>
<li>
<a href="<% if Title = page1child1 %><% control Page(page2child1) %>$Link<% end_control %><% end_if %><% if Title = page1child2 %><% control Page(page2child2) %>$Link<% end_control %><% end_if %><% if Title = page1child3 %><% control Page(page2child3) %>$Link<% end_control %><% end_if %>">$Title</a></li>
</ul>

Its very hard coded but for 5 children Link to other 5 children you could use such a code.

they are not that many (round 5 or 6 eventually).
your method sounds good for now. Though if anyone can think of an automatic way of doing this im all ears.

Thanks SalvaStripe.
