    Hi all,

    Just another challenge where I would like some input from others.
    I want to create a website in which the pages are not the main items to navigate through the site.

    This website should be based on 'Sections', 'Themes' and 'Categories'. This is also the relation between them. Top - down.

    An example is shown here (this is a TYPO3/php website at the moment):

    So users choose a Section, then a theme and then a category. After that they find all kinds of resources. For now we just have 'Articles'. I don't know if this is possible to setup in Sitefinity?

    Hello Daniel,

    Each section could be a Group Page or just a normal page that has several Sub Pages. You could use SitePanelBar control on your template and set

    • StartingNodeOffset = 0
    • StartFromCurrentNode = true
    • ShowStartingNode = true

    Best wishes,
    Ivan Dimitrov

    Okay. But this theme's and categories should come from a database. This database is frequently updated, so it is not an option to create a page for every category...

    I thought maybe to create one page, called 'Section' and then let the current selected theme or category determine what would be the content that is loaded on this page.

    Well... I'll think about it.

    Thanks,
    Daniel
