Hi!

Can somebody explain a simple way how to access an individual children (Article Title/Body) without using
the control childrenOf command?

The disadvantage here is that you have to define an additional layer within the site structure...

Thanks for your help

Sorry perhaps not really understanding the question. If you want a specific page on the site you can use <% control Page(page-url) %> to get a single page regardless of what the site structure is.

Thanks,

is it also possible to access the children by a parameter "order",
meaning the first, second, third etc.... in order of appearance within the cms interface?

best,
tom

Hi,

you can create a function to do that.

$children = DataObject::get("SiteTree","ParentID = '$this->ID'","Date DESC");
if($children) return $children;
return null;
