Hi Guys,

I am trying to add Page, Calendar and ArticlePage page types under ArticleHolder page type.
But dont want ArticlePages in my left navigation...

1. Following is the code used in ArticleHolder.php =>
class ArticleHolder extends Page {
static $db = array(
static $has_one = array(

static $allowed_children = array("Page", "Calendar");

2. To add articles on ArticleHolder page - following code is used in =>

<% control Articles %>
<div id="NewsListL">
<div id="NewsListR">
<a href="$Link" title="Read more on &quot;{$Title}&quot;" class="title">$Title</a><br/>
<span class="newsDate">$Date.Nice</span><br/>
$Content.FirstParagraph <a href="$Link" title="Read more on &quot;{$Title}&quot;">Read more &gt;&gt;</a>
<div class="clear"></div>
<% end_control %>

3. And in Page.php - I am using following code =>

function Articles() {
return DataObject::get('ArticlePage');

4. Code in =>

<% control Menu(2) %>
<% if Children %>
<a href="$Link" title="$Title" class="$LinkingMode">$MenuTitle<span class="greenArrow">&raquo;</span></a>
<% if LinkOrSection = section %>
<ul id="SidebarMenu1">
<% control Children %>

<li><a href="$Link" title="$Title" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle</span></a></li>

<% end_control %>
<% end_if %>
<% else %>
<a href="$Link" title="$Title" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle</span></a>
<% end_if %>
<% end_control %>

Is there any way not to include Article pages in left navigation on ArticleHolder page or any of its sub pages????

Kind Regards
