Yes, it's IRRITATING...what we do here is just drop on the single documentlink controls...annoying.
What you have to do is put in a ticket and ask for the PITS issue to vote on, and if it doesn't exist, have them make a new one...this should exist though.
What needs to happen:
- DocumentLink Widget gets depreciated (as it doesn't provide any real value...can't edit the template for example). So like if you dropped a document list on the page, and a documentlink below it, they render TOTALLY differently, where you would assume the rendered markup would be similar...and it's a pain pain pain to get them somewhat close.
- Content Widgets (all of them) need the ability to search for and SELECT documents from anywhere. Not just by albums\folders\categories. So like right now if I go to a module builder widget and plop it on a page, pick a single item...I can't select any more. I should not only be able to select more, but also tell the widget to render in MasterView still; right now that's not possible. If I select the one item the stupid thing renders in single view with no ability to turn that off. So once this is done then the DocumentLink widget is rendered obsolete because you can just pick single items.
...put in the ticket, posting here will do nothing
