Listing with TotalCMS


(Rico IJntema) #1

I’m working with TotalCMS for quite some time now. Using it for blogging.
Now I would like to make a TotalCMS page to make a link page (text and URL’s). Somehow I can’t figure out how to setup such a page.

I can add a textfields and add a URL in it, but how do I set it up so that I can add another line with a new URL when I’m logged into the CMS?

Just use a single Total CMS text stack and add a carriage return after the end of each line? Or maybe I’m misunderstanding.

Can you be more specific on what your are having issues doing? Is it creating links?


(Rico IJntema) #4

That is what I’m trying to do.

So a page of links like this?

If so, that’s just a single Text stack being used to handle all the links. (This uses Easy CMS but the principle is exactly the same with Total CMS).
Log into the CMS and

  1. Type the text you want to turn into a link
  2. Highlight it
  3. Choose the link button in the button bar of the editor
  4. Add the URL
  5. Confirm
  6. Press return and move onto the next link.
  7. Save and exit the CMS.
  8. Open the page of links on the live site, refresh the page to see your changes.

Wow, @robbeattie yes!

That for sure is a good way to do it. So easy that I didn’t think of it. :laughing: I was thinking about a listing stack. But this works also. Good way to start.
Is there a some kind of listing stack that can be used with TotalCMS?

This list of prices is controlled by Easy CMS via the PriceList stack from Marathia (https://rapidweaver.marathia.com/stacks/pricelist/). Total CMS would work in the same way. It’s a little time-consuming to set up but works quite effectively.
