    Nested DataObjectManager instances? Link to this post

    Hi there,

    I am developing a work portfolio section of a site.

    A work page will typically have lots of case studies. As there are likely to be quite a lot of case studies, I want these to be managed within a DataObjectManager rather than within the site tree as pages.

    Each case study will then have multiple images, or resources, so ideally these again should be within an ImageDataObjectManager or FileDataObjectManager.

    Is it possible to have this within the case study popups like this?

    If not, do you suggest any other options, other than to revert case studies back to being pages in the site tree?

    Adrian

    So glad you asked! For the last few weeks, I've been working on what will be the next major component of the DataObjectManager package -- NestedDataObjectManager, which will allow the use of a DataObjectManager in the popup window of its parent.

    It's going really slowly. There's a lot to work out, but I will definitely be making some noise about it when it's complete, so keep checking the New Features RSS feed.

    Thanks for that. Will definitley check it out when it arrives. For now though decided to revert back to having the case studies in the site tree
