Display a list of content items on a page

Website Publisher 5.1 offers the ability for content items to be nested within other content items. In this example, we will nest a Blog from the content type "Blogs" into a Webpage called "Blogs" so whenever the Webpage "Blogs" gets viewed, it will display a list of all blogs. This article assumes that you already have a menu/list created to display a list of blogs.

Create a new Content Type called "Content Lists". This will contain specific pages that list content for content types.
  1. Go to Content Types > Create Content Type.
  2. Name it "Content Lists" (you can call it whatever you want if you wish).
  3. Add a Title and a Summary/Content (and whatever other fields you want).
  4. Drag across the "Allow Own Site Layout" field. This will allow the content item's layout to be modified form the Website Layout page.
  5. Give it a name and save it.
Create a Content List to hold the nested content. In this case it's "Blogs".
  1. Go to Website Content > Create a Content List.
  2. Fill in the required fields.
  3. Check the field "Website Layout: " labeled "Yes, this Content List has should have its own layout ".
After creating your "Blogs" Content List add the list to the layout.
  1. Go to Design > Website Layout.
  2. Select your Content List (Blogs) from the field labeled "Select a Layout to Edit".
  3. Open the Menus & Lists list on the left and drag across a Content Children List. A window will open allowing you to edit the list.
  4. Give it a title.
  5. Under "Choose which content types to include in this list:" select "Blogs".
  6. Select "".
  7. Save.
Now we will modify the "Blogs" Content Type to allow it to be nested within other content.
  1. Go to Content Types.
  2. Edit the "Blogs" Content Type.
  3. Drag  across the field "Nested Content".
  4. Save.
Edit/create a blog.
  1. Go to Website Content > Create a Blog (or edit an existing one)
  2. Fill out all of the required information.
  3. Select "Content Lists" from the field "Parent Menu Item". This is the content item in which this blog will be nested under.
  4. Save.
You should now be able to navigate to your "Blogs" Webpage and see a list of your blogs.
