I'm working on an encyclopedia-type of project and need some pages to be listed under more than one category. Is there a way to designate a page as a sub-page of more than one parent page?

the silverstripe database structure won't allow more than one parent id for a page, but there are other possibilities:
- use 'VirtualPage' in the sitetree (i was having problems with this one in previous silverstripe versions, can't say wheter it's doing fine now)
- refactor your code using dataobjects (see the tutorials on this or just post here again in case you need further advice)

Thanks, I definitely need more advice. I haven't read the tutorial on dataobjects yet but I will.
How does the VirtualPage work for what I want to do?

i suppose you're using 'category' pages, such as 'food' and 'fruit'.
so for a page called 'apple', you might first create the page in the sitetree as a child of 'food', then you could switch to 'fruit' and create a virtualpage there, pointing to the 'apple' page created under 'food'.
as for the dataobject approach, you should work through tutorial 5, but make sure you're already familiar with the concepts explained in the previous tutorials (except tutorial 4 maybe).

Hey, that's great. The VirtualPage option seems to be just fine. One question - will it create issues of duplicate content in search engines?
