  • [CMS] Can add new CMS section, but only as a subsection

    Hello,

    I now have one CMS section. I want to add a second section, but I'm only able to add it as a subsection of the one section that already exists. How does one add a new cms section that is not a subsection?

    Thanks

      Wild069,

      Thanks for taking the time to help. I had already read the PDF on sections, and I just read it again. It doesn't help. When I click to add a section, my only choice is to add the new section as a subsection. By the way, in the examples in the PDF file there is only one section ("The Front Page"), and everything else is a subsection of this section.

      I'm unable to add new sections, only subsections to "The Front Page."

      Cordially, whopwood

          Wildo69,

          I think you see the the problem. It forces you to add everything to The Front Page.

          But I know this isn't how it's supposed to work. When I first installed V4, I did selected the option "Yes" to include test data. So when it installed it created several sections besides The Front Page. The other sections were something like "Food" and "Travel." I deleted these sections but then couldn't find any way to add them back.

          To see what I mean, click on Home on this page, above. You'll see several sections: "What's new," "How to: Install/Upgrade," "How to: Styling/Theming," and so on.

                  I found out that you can't do this, at least without a hack.

                  But you can make your sections appear on the dark blue nav bar by editing the sections and setting Navbar values in the lower-left part of the page. This seems to give the same appearance that you would get by adding more top-level sections.
