Hoi,

I want to make an news page looking like an newspaper with the first paragraphs of the child pages.

But I don't know how to get the child pages into the boxes, I need to give them a number so I decide in which box they
come

I put a screen with this question to let you see what I mean, and of course the code I justed.

Please can someone help me?

Gr. Suzanne

You cannot do <% if Children.isEen() %>.

Most of the time your boxes and pages will be in order so you could simply just do a <% loop Children %><div class="box">$Content.FirstParagraph</div><% end_if %> then float your boxes left. Your friends are $Pos, $MultipleOf and $Modulus which allow you to add classes or behaviour - http://doc.silverstripe.org/framework/en/reference/templates#looping-over-lists
