Using the List Module EffectivelyΒΆ

Choose the WEB > List module and place yourself on the "Congratulations" page. You should see the following:

The list view typically shows the list of records present on the current page, grouped by type. The name which appears for each record depends on which field is used as label. For "pages", the field is "Pagetitle".

The list view offers a lot of action icons in the Docheader:

  1. Create a new record (a wizard appears to let choose which type)
  2. View the current page (in the frontend)
  3. Edit the current page
  4. Search in the current page
  5. Clear the cache of the current page
  6. Refresh the List view
  7. Bookmark this view
  8. Access contextual help

In the Content Area, there are also some action icons:

  1. Create a new page record (specifically)

  2. Action icons for the record. What icons appear here depends on the record type. If the record is viewable in the frontend (as "pages" are), a "View" icon is displayed. All records will have the next three icons, respectively "Edit", "Hide/unhide" (i.e. visible in the frontend or not) and "Delete".

    The ellipsis icon (three consecutive dots) expands the icon list to show additional action icons (typically for accessing information, moving around, etc.)

    Last come the cut and paste icons.

If you want to always see the expanded list of icons, you can check the "Extended view" box at the bottom of the view (please scroll down).

Also make sure that the "Show clipboard" box is checked, as we will explore this next.

If you plan to manage a multilingual web site, you will want to also check the "Localization view" checkbox.
