i want to have a page type with hmctf, and inside this hmctf i want to have another hmctf...

for example, i would like to add any number of divs to my page, each div with a image - this would be the 1st hmctf.
to each image, there are any number of attributes - the 2nd hmctf, inside the 1st.

is that possible?

or is there a better way?

Hi Marcink

I doubt this is possible without *a lot* of work rewriting ComplexTableField and probably a load of the javascript which runs in the CMS.......not a good idea unless you like headaches ;)

Probably one ctf with a dynamic dropdown to select the image would be the closest you can get without a lot of hassle.

Hope that helps
